Emory Women's Basketball Wins At Guilford

Emory Women's Basketball Wins At Guilford

Ashley Oldshue posted game highs with 22 points and nine rebounds in leading the Emory women's basketball team to a 67-45 Sunday afternoon win over Guilford College to close the Quakers' Daly 7 Classic. The Eagles, who led the entire game, improved to 2-1 while Guilford dropped to 1-2.

Oldshue ended the contest 10-of-14 from the floor and two-of-three from the stipe en route to producing her third double-figure scoring game of the young campaign. Senior Azzairia Jackson-Sherrod was the other Eagle to finish in double digits with 13 points while contributing seven boards and a game-high three blocked shots. Junior Lindsey Tse played a solid game at both ends of the floor, dishing out a season-high nine assists and coming up with a career-high six steals.

With Jackson-Sherrod scoring 10 points and Oldshue adding six, Emory raced to a 25-13 lead after the first quarter. The Eagles maintained their double-digit margin the whole second stanza, building a 16-point bulge at 35-19 with 2:22 on the clock following a pair of free throws by Allison Chernow. Emory would take a 37-24 lead into the break with Jackson-Sherrod chalking up 11 first-half points and Oldshue totaling nine.

Emory opened the third quarter on an 8-0 burst, with Oldshue scoring six points in that stretch, to bolt to a 21-point cushion, 45-24. A jumper by sophomore Blair Ripley gave the Eagles another 21-point lead, 47-26, with 4:16 remaining, eventually closing out the frame ahead by a 50-32 margin.  The Quakers drew to within 14 points early in the fourth quarter before the Eagles sealed the outcome with a 12-0 blitz over  a 5:20 stretch that ballooned their lead to 62-36. 

Emory ended the contest shooting 47.5 percent (29-of-61) from the floor compared to Guilford's 37.8 percent (17-of-45).  The Eagles recorded a hefty 40-22 edge in rebounding, 18-7 on the offensive end.

Oldshue was named MVP of the Classic while Lindsey Tse was tabbed to the all-tournament team.
