Time Runs Out on Hollins

Roanoke, VA - Hollins University Basketball vs Guilford College, February 6, 2013

Box Score

After finishing a three game road trip with a pair of wins, Hollins returned home where they played host to Guilford College on Wednesday night.  The Quakers, reigning ODAC Champions, came into the game sitting atop the conference standings with an 11-1 mark but Hollins was looking to pull off the upset and avenge an earlier loss (53-68) in Greensboro.

Hollins struggled from the outset, putting only a pair of free throws on the board during the first 10 minutes of play.  However, the Hollins defense was stout and kept Guilford from pulling away and with 9:49 left to play int he first half the score was 12-2.  After a Quaker basket pushed the lead to 12, Hollins took over the game and outscored their visitors 17-9 down the stretch.  When the halftime buzzer sound, Hollins found themselves down just four, 19-23, at the break.  The two teams traded baskets coming out of the half until Guilford started to take over the game and pull away.  After an 11-2 run over the next five minutes, the Quakers had stretched their lead to 18 points and appeared to be on their way to an easy victory.  Hollins wouldn't go quietly and thrilling by 18 with three minutes to play, the home team started to get much needed stops and finally figured out the Quaker zone defense.  Over the final three minutes, Hollins outscored Guilford by 11 points but ran out of time, falling 67-60 to the ODAC's top team.

Jasmine Greene (Hampton, VA) struggled from the field but hit eight of her 10 free throws on her way to 12 points.  Greene led with a team high eight rebounds while dishing out three assists.  Lacie Forrest (Richmond, VA) scored 11 points to go with her five rebounds, and four assists.  Carrie Cox (Lynch Station, VA) went three of seven from "downtown" en route to nine points while Racheal Crowder (Buena Vista, VA) added a pair of three pointers and eight points.  Lauren Hays (Saginaw, TX) helped keep Hollins in the game in the first half by scoring five points and pulling down three rebounds.  Hays finished with six points and six rebounds in 19 minutes of play.

Brittany Drew came off the bench to lead the Quakers with 17 points.  Gabby Oglesby recorded a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds and fellow post player Morgan King, battling foul trouble, chipped in with nine points and five boards.
