Box Score

After opening the second part of the season with a three game home stand, Hollins took to the road for a non-conference match up with Washington and Lee.  Hollins was able to take two of three coming out of the break and looked to make it three in a row against the Generals.

The Hollins defense has led the way during the teams current two game win streak.  After holding their opponents to under 30% shooting in three of the previous four halves, Hollins again made it tough on their opponents to put the ball in the basket.  Washington and Lee was able to crack the 30% mark but just barely, 31%,as the home team hit on only nine of their 29 first half attempts.  After hitting a pair of three pointers and six of seven from the free throw line, Hollins carried a 28-21 lead into the break.

Hollins again saw their defense rise up during the second half holding the Generals to just 48 points on the evening.  The visitors were able to win the battle on the boards, 40-35, and held W&L to just 29% from the field en route to picking up the 60-48 road victory.

Senior forward Chanci Wright (Eden, TX) led the Hollins offensive attack with 15 points and seven rebounds.  Britney Campbell (Silver Spring, MD) was the only other Hollins player to hit double figures by adding 10 points and seven rebounds.  Taylor Catron (Tazewell, VA) recorded a team high eight rebounds and six points while Carrie Cox (Lynch Station, VA) came off the bench to hit three, three pointers en route to nine points and three rebounds.
