Maryville, TN - Similar to last night's game at Covenant, the Wesleyan College basketball team got off to a slow start against league leader Maryville College and couldn't dig out of the early hole. The Wolves outscored the Scots over the final three quarters of action but ultimately lost the USA South conference game by a score of 60-47.

Notables:

  • Justice Thigpen capped off a phenomenal week of basketball by scoring a game high 17 points to go along with seven rebounds, four steals, and two assists.
  • Bree Raymond added 12 points for the Wolves, while Taylor Thigpen pitched in an additional nine.
  • The Scots held Wesleyan to 30% shooting from the field and outrebounded the Wolves by 16, creating the difference in the game.
  • Earlier in the day, the team visited the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame and the Pat Summitt memorial statue outside Thompson Boling Arena at the University of Tennessee.

Quotable: 

Following the game, Coach DiMarzio stated, "We had a slow start out of the gate again today. However, had it not been for the first quarter, we not only competed against Maryville, who is the top team in our division, but we beat them over the course of the remaining three quarters."

"Q[uenshawn]'s stat line doesn't show the value she brings to the court for us, always drawing one of the toughest defensive matchups and doing a tremendous job. Alyssa stretched the court by hitting from long distance, Justice was once again invaluable, and we received quality minutes from everyone again today."

"We are certainly playing our best basketball right now, but unfortunately, we haven't been able to string together a full 40 minutes versus conference opponents. We have our sights set on Agnes Scott on Tuesday and hope to have a packed gym supporting us against our rivals."
