Hollins Has No Answers For Yellow Jackets

Ashland, VA - Hollins University Basketball at Randolph-Macon College, December 1, 2012

Box Score

After falling to Bridgewater College on Wednesday night, Hollins looked to even their ODAC record with a trip to Randolph-Macon on Saturday afternoon.  The last time Hollins faced the Yellow Jackets, it was Hollins that came away with an upset win in their season finale. 

After digging themselves a first half hole against the Eagles thanks in part to 25% shooting, Hollins came out against Macon and shot the ball much better during the first half.  However despite shooting over 40% from the filed and 80% from the free line Hollins found themselves on the short end of a 45-33 halftime score.  The second half saw Hollins play much better defense, holding the home team to just 10 field goals.  The visitors cut the lead to eight with 8:11 left in the second half but could get no closer as Randolph-Macon held on for an 82-66 ODAC win.

Lacie Forrest (Richmond, VA) and Alexa Smith (Barboursville, VA) came off the bench to score 15 points apiece.  Forrest did her damage from the field making seven of 15 shots while Smith only missed on field goal and hit on five of her six free throw attempts.  Jasmine Greene (Hampton, VA) scored 13 points to go with her four assists and six steals.  Chanci Wright (Eden, TX) added nine points and a game high eight rebounds.  Hollins shot the ball much better hitting on 43.3% of their field goals and 86.7% from the stripe but 30 turnovers were just too much to overcome.

Randolph-Macon saw five players reach double figures led by Katie Anderson and her game high 22 points.  Sarah Parsons and Kellie Cortina each added 15 while Hannah Livermore scored 14.  Khajae scored 10 while handing out six assists and Anderson led the Yellow Jackets with seven rebounds.

Hollins will be back in action on Wednesday night when they travel to Lynchburg.  The game with the Hornets is scheduled to tip at 7:00pm.
