ROANOKE, Va.- Visiting Shenandoah University surpassed its 2016-17 win total Saturday thanks to a 63-52 women's basketball victory over Hollins University.

Shenandoah (7-6, 3-1 ODAC) won for the second time this week and the 10th time in 11 lifetime meetings with Hollins (3-9, 0-4) by combining a solid shooting effort with a dominating performance on the boards.

SU shot an even 40 percent (24-of-60) from the field and grabbed 44 of the game's 82 rebounds to take out host Hollins.

The Hornets expanded a three-point first quarter lead by outscoring HU 15-10 in the second and 14-11 in the third.

The two teams then split the 38 points scored in the fourth quarter.

"It took us awhile to get in a rhythm offensively, but, we weathered the storm and played with composure when it mattered," SU coach Melissa Smeltzer-Kraft said. "I am proud of our group for getting an ODAC win on the road."

Sophomore Ashley Stone led all scorers with 17 points while pulling down nine rebounds. Classmate Jordan Sondrol, the squad's leading scorer in a win over previously undefeated Randolph-Macon on Wednesday, had a game-high 12 rebounds to go along with eight points.

Shannon Kuhn added 11 points, dished out five assists and added six rebounds in her second start of the season.

Sophomore Sarah Donley had all 13 of her points in the first half while posting a career-high eight rebounds.

Keyazia Taylor led Hollins in scoring with 16 points.

Shenandoah returns home on Wednesday for a 7 p.m. ODAC contest versus Eastern Mennonite.
