ROANOKE, Va. – Host Hollins University earned its third ODAC women's basketball win of the season Saturday with a 57-52 victory over Shenandoah.

HU (7-16, 3-13 ODAC) outscored the Hornets (10-13, 6-10) by eight points in the third period to provide the cushion it needed to earn just its second-ever victory over Shenandoah.

SU held its final lead at the 8:29 mark of the third when Shannon Kuhn made 1-of-2 from the line. Hollins answered with a 3-pointer on the ensuing trip down the floor which also kickstarted an 8-0 run.

Shenandoah would cut the deficit to two points, 40-38, on a pair of Kelsey Jones free throws at 3:48 only to see its hosts close out the stanza with another 8-0 run.

In the fourth, SU would again come to within two points, this time thanks to a Sarah Donley 3-pointer with 4:25 remaining, but could not complete the comeback.

Hollins scored nine of the game's final 15 points to clinch the win.


The Hornets play their final home game of the season on Wednesday at 5 p.m. versus Eastern Mennonite. This game is also the program's "Play4Kay" event.
