ARLINGTON, Va. – Host Marymount University combined a hot shooting night along with a strong defensive effort to down visiting Shenandoah 74-39 in non-league women's basketball action Monday night at Verizon Sports Arena.

The Saints (3-1) shot 59 percent in the first half (19-of-32), including 10-of-16 (63 percent) in the second quarter on their way to a 46-15 halftime lead over Shenandoah (2-2).

MU led 25-7 after one and kept the pressure up in the second, scoring 21 of the 30 points in the quarter to take the 31-point lead into the break.

Marymount forced the Hornets into 17 first half turnovers, which led to 29 points, and had a 17-7 edge on the glass.

The Saints ended up scoring 40 points off of 27 Hornets turnovers in the contest.

Shenandoah refused to fold, however, and outscored Marymount 15-9 in the final stanza. Coach Melissa Smeltzer-Kraft's club shot 60 percent (6-for-10) in the fourth.

Sophomore Jordan Sondrol paced the visitors with 14 points and six rebounds while classmate Sarah Donley added four assists.

Ashley Stone had nine points to back up Sondrol.
