EMORY, Va. – Lauren Ramsey (Lexington, N.C./North Davidson) scored a career-high 20 points as Guilford College held off a late Emory & Henry College rally to earn a Thursday evening Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) victory, 73-71.

Emory & Henry held an advantage early, with their largest lead being capped at 10 points past the mid-way point of the first half. The Quakers (15-9, 9-6 ODAC) closed the deficit to one before going into the locker room down five. A Guilford 11-0 run over a 3:31 stretch early in the second half propelled the Quakers to the lead as they marched towards their largest lead (nine points), taking place with 10:44 left in the second half. The Wasps would close the deficit into a two-possession advantage in the final minute thanks to a quick 5-0 run, but the Quakers defense held Emory & Henry on the final shot at the buzzer to claim the win.

Ramsey’s career-best effort offensively came thanks to 8-of-12 shooting and 4-of-6 shooting from the foul line. The freshman added four rebounds, three on the offensive glass, and three assists.

Anais Weatherly (Winston-Salem, N.C./Mount Tabor) added 18 points, seven rebounds, and three assists. Miranda Martin (Winston-Salem, N.C./R.J. Reynolds) and Heaven Walters (Yadkinville, N.C./Starmount) added 10 points a piece off the bench to power the Quakers’ reserves. Kali Cuttaia (Eden, N.C./Morehead/Univ. of Charleston (W. Va.)) led all players on the glass, amassing 13 rebounds.

The Wasps boasted four players in double-figure scoring, led by Tamara Brewster’s 16 points with seven rebounds on 6-of-13 shooting. Megan Jacoby and Chloe Harris each added 13 points a piece with Jacoby also totaling six assists. Karina Farr added 12 points and eight rebounds.

Guilford shot 46.3 percent including 48.6 percent second-half shooting. Emory & Henry shot 43.3 percent from the field after shooting 48.3 percent in the second half. The Wasps shot 15-of-16 (93.8 percent) from the foul line compared to the Quakers’ 7-of-13 (53.8 percent).

The Quakers out-rebounded the Wasps, 45-30, on the power of 20 offensive rebounds compared to 10 offensive boards for the Wasps. Guilford held the advantage in second chance points, 24-8. Emory & Henry held the edge in points off turnovers, 16-13, with the Quakers committing 15 turnovers and the Wasps committing 10.

The Quakers close out the regular season Saturday, hosting Lynchburg College for a 2 p.m. ODAC contest on Senior Day inside Ragan-Brown Field House.
