LEXINGTON, Va. – Rookie forward Alston Furr scored a game-high 20 points in Guilford College’s 64-52 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) men’s basketball win at Washington and Lee University Saturday.

Teammate Jake Hopkins added 12 points and a game-high 10 rebounds, which helped the Quakers (16-5, 10-2 ODAC) hold a commanding 47-26 edge on the glass. Guilford collected 16 offensive rebounds, six by Hopkins, contributing to 13 second-chance points. The Quakers also outscored the Generals (6-15, 3-9 ODAC), 32-16, in the paint.

Guilford built a five-point halftime lead into a 13-point advantage with 5:46 remaining in regulation. Furr netted 13 of his points in the second stanza. Washington and Lee cut the deficit to seven with 56 seconds to play, but Zachary Houston came up with a steal and four free throws in the final 31 seconds to secure the win.

While Houston did not attempt a shot, he made his presence felt with seven rebounds, six assists and five steals, all career highs. Matt McCarthy, the Quakers’ top scorer, was held to eight points, but contributed four boards, four assists and three steals.

Drew Kimberly led Washington and Lee with 19 points and eight rebounds. The homestanding Generals shot just 15-for-45 (33%) from the floor.
