GREENSBORO, N.C. – Guilford College’s Kayla Scott notched a career-high 14 points as the Quakers posted a Wednesday night Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) victory over Roanoke College, 62-45.

Scott came off the bench to shoot five-of-eight from the field, including four-of-six from three-point range on a night where the Quakers shot eight-of-25 (32 percent) from beyond the arc, compared to just one-of-six for Roanoke. Amy Steller (Advance, N.C./Davie/Pfeiffer) was the remaining Quakers’ player in double-figure scoring with ten points on four-of-nine shooting, adding seven rebounds. Anais Weatherly (Winston-Salem, N.C./Mount Tabor) totaled six points and 16 rebounds, a season-high, with six steals.

Roanoke jumped to a 8-3 lead 3:42 into the first quarter before the Quakers mounted a 12-2 run spanning all the way until the buzzer, where Roanoke’s Cary Beahm sunk a lay-up to end the quarter. Roanoke held a 10-4 advantage in the paint during the period while Guilford held an 8-0 edge in points-off-turnovers.

The Quakers produced a 17-6 run for 7:09 of the second quarter, which started with a Allison Livengood lay-up to erase the Quakers’ lead. Guilford’s lead jumped as high as 15 points in the period as the Quakers’ bench outscored the Maroons, 10-2, in the period. The Quakers re-gained the advantage in the paint with a 12-6 edge for the period.

The lead capped at 16 points over the first five minutes of the third quarter as the Quakers held the Maroons to just two field goals in the period. Guilford’s lead grew as large as 21 points at the end of the quarter after a Weatherly jumper with five seconds left.

Guilford’s lead extended as large as 23 points with 6:37 left in the fourth quarter as the Guilford bench out-scored Roanoke, 13-6, in the period. Roanoke held a 12-6 edge in the paint for the period and a 13-2 edge in points-off-turnovers, but the Quakers’ lead never dipped below 17 points as Guilford pulled away to victory.

Livengood was the lone Roanoke player in double-figure scoring, totaling 11 points on five-of-eight shooting while adding seven rebounds. Cary Beahm added eight points and nine rebounds.

The Quakers shot 35.1 percent from the field while Roanoke shot 31.7 percent, including just nine second-half field goals. Guilford held a 52-39 edge on the glass against the Maroons. Roanoke posted a slight 13-12 edge on second-chance points in spite of Guilford holding an 18-9 edge on the offensive glass. Both sides ended even in the paint, 32-32, while Guilford held the advantage in points-off-turnovers, 18-13. The Quakers held a decisive 32-14 edge in bench scoring.

The Quakers return to action Saturday, hosting Randolph-Macon College for a 2 p.m. ODAC contest.
