VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Virginia Wesleyan University women's basketball team put up a dominating performance Saturday afternoon, taking down Hollins, 63-25, in the Jane P. Batten Student Center. The win makes it five-straight for the Marlins, improving their record to 6-4 in conference play and 9-10 overall. Hollins moves to 3-15 on the season and remain winless in the ODAC (0-10).
It was an all-around effort from the Marlins as the squad held Hollins to the fewest amount of points scored since a win over the same opponent on Jan. 19, 2007. It kicked off early as VWU shut down its foe completely over the first 10 minutes, not allowing them to score a single point.
The squad dominated Hollins over all aspects of the scoresheet, including its 55 rebounds which was a season high. Heading the front in the paint was Mak McSweeney, who hauled in a career-high 11 on the day.
Continuing with the defensive effort, the squad racked up a season-high 14 steals as Kerri Wasko picked off a team-high three.
Offensively, things were clicking for the Marlins as well. Of the 14 players that touched the floor, 13 of them recorded at least one point. Amanda Gerni led all players with 15, 12 of which coming from beyond the arc.
Women's basketball returns to action at 7 p.m. on Tuesday as the squad hosts conference-foe Randolph-Macon.
