GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senior guard Brittany Glasco totaled 16 points, 12 rebounds, six steals and three assists in Virginia Wesleyan College’s Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) 69-62 overtime basketball win at Guilford College Saturday.

Guilford won the tip in overtime, but missed two shots and turned the ball over four times on its first six possessions. Symonne Newsome scored on a follow basket a minute into overtime and Nancy Kelly followed with four free throws to open a 63-57 Marlins’ edge with 3:18 remaining.
