SALEM, Va. – Josh Pittman (Archdale, N.C./Trinity) totaled 19 points, six rebounds and seven assists in Guilford College’s 76-48 Old Dominion Athletic Conference basketball win at Roanoke College Wednesday.

The Quakers (15-5, 7-4 ODAC) raced to a 47-25 halftime lead to snap their first three-game ODAC losing skid since 2006. Matt McCarthy hit for 13 of his 16 points in the opening half and Pittman added 11 for Guilford, which made seven three-pointers in the frame. The Quakers shot 50 percent from the floor in the first half, as compared to Roanoke’s 29.7 percent shooting. The Maroons (8-12, 1-10 ODAC) misfired on all nine three-point attempts in the opening period. Guilford scored the first seven points of the second half, which opened a 54-25 margin before Roanoke’s Daniel Eacho scored at the 15:30 mark. The Maroons drew no closer than 21 points the rest of the way.

The Quakers had four double-figure scorers, led by backcourt mates Pittman and McCarthy. Forward Jake Hopkins (Kernersville, N.C./East Forsyth) scored 11 points and center Will Freeman added 10 off the bench, all in the first half. Guilford enjoyed a commanding 51-38 rebounding advantage, led by rookie Zeb Richardson’s (West Jefferson, N.C./Ashe County) game-high 10 rebounds.

Eacho finished with a team-high nine points for Roanoke. The Maroons managed just 27.5% field-goal shooting, including two-for-22 from beyond the arc.

Guilford hosts league newcomer Shenandoah University Saturday (2/2) at 2:00 p.m.
