GREENSBORO, N.C. – Trever Hyatt drained five three-pointers and scored a game-high 17 points in Guilford College’s 71-56 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) basketball win over visiting Washington and Lee University Saturday afternoon. The victory extended (13-4, 6-2 ODAC) Guilford’s season-best winning streak to five games.

Hyatt, who also had five threes in Wednesday’s road triumph at Randolph College, made four of his first five trifectas and had 14 points by halftime. He sparked the Quakers’ decisive 31-7 run that turned an early 10-2 deficit into a 33-17 lead 4:27 before halftime. After Guilford battled back to tie the game at 13-13, Hyatt ripped off three straight three-pointers and Guilford never looked back. Teammate Matt McCarthy added two of his three first-half three-pointers in the spurt. At one point, Guilford held the Generals (6-11, 3-5 ODAC) scoreless for five-and-a-half minutes.

The Quakers’ margin grew to as many as 24 in the second half. Washington and Lee drew no closer than 15.

Hyatt’s 17 paced four Quakers in double-figure scoring. McCarthy, Jonny Rice and Will Koppenhaver each tallied 12 points. Koppenhaver’s 12 points mark a career best. Rice, in his first game against his former team, shared game-high rebounding honors with seven.

Andrew Franz paced Washington and Lee with 12 points and had five rebounds. Joe Sherwood chipped in 10 points off the bench, eight in the second half.

Guilford visits league-rival Emory & Henry College Wednesday (1/28).
