Macon, GA - Despite a balanced offensive effort from the Wolves, Sewanee shot lights out on Sunday afternoon, defeating Wesleyan by a score of 78-50. 

Notables:

  • Freshman Bree Raymond came off the bench to lead Wesleyan with 15 points and six rebounds in 27 minutes of action.
  • The Thigpen sisters continue to be a critical duo for the Wolves both offensively and defensively. Senior Justice scored five points, pulled down 13 rebounds, and dished out six assists in 40 minutes of action, while sophomore Taylor recorded 11 points and four rebounds in 38 minutes.
  • Sophomore Lexie Russell also had a nice outing with nine points, seven rebouonds and three blocks in 19 minutes on the court.
  • Sewanee put on an offensive clinic, shooting 41.6% from the floor, including an uncanny 42.9% from beyond the arc, while holding the Wolves to 31.1% shooting.

Quotable:

"Today we didn't show up to play 40 minutes," remarked Wesleyan head coach Nicky DiMarzio. "We played fairly well in the first quarter, but in the second, Sewanee went on a six point run that put us in a rut.  We had mental lapses and were unable to chip away at the lead they continued to push forward. The entire game, we were really unable to get into a groove offensively and defensively made too many mistakes.  We knew Sewanee was going to shoot a lot of three's, and we didn't make the right rotations to cover the corner three.  When a team shoots 12-28 from beyond the arc, it's going to make for a long afternoon for us."
