EMORY, Va. – Senior Josh Pittman (Archdale, N.C./Trinity) poured in a game- and season-high 32 points in Guilford College’s 82-68 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) basketball win at Emory & Henry College Wednesday night. The victory extended Guilford’s winning streak to a season-best seven games.

Pittman stroked seven three-pointers, the most by an ODAC competitor this season, in 13 attempts. He hit three threes during a decisive 18-0 Guilford run in the first half. Emory & Henry’s Charles Smith made one of two free throws 8:14 before halftime to give the Wasps (2-9, 0-4 ODAC) an 18-13 lead, but the Quakers (12-2, 4-1 ODAC) reeled off the next 18 points on the way to a 33-23 halftime edge. Pittman had 11 of his 15 first-half points during the spurt.

Tyler Mullins brought Emory & Henry to within 39-31 three minutes into the second half before Pittman drained back-to-back three-pointers.

The long-distance shots triggered a 19-4 Guilford burst that effectively put the game out of reach. Mullins tried to rally the Wasps, scoring 17 of his team-high 21 points in the second half, but Guilford maintained at least a 13-point lead for the final 15:27. The Quakers shot 61.5 percent from the floor in the second half.

Guilford’s Matt McCarthy scored 14 points and reigning ODAC Player of the Week Zeb Richardson (West Jefferson, N.C./Ashe County) chipped in 13 points and eight rebounds. The Quakers held a narrow 40-38 rebounding edge thanks in part to Jake Hopkins’ (Kernersville, N.C./East Forsyth) team-high 10 boards.

Mullins’ 21 points and game-high 12 rebounds paced Emory & Henry, which shot just over 37% from the floor. Myles Turner added 11 points for the Wasps before fouling out. Smith and Tyler Driver both scored nine points.

Guilford visits league-rival Eastern Mennonite Saturday (1/12) for a 2:00 p.m. contest. The Quakers pulled out a 67-64 home victory over the Royals Nov. 28 in Greensboro.
