Senior Ashley Oldshue led the Emory women's basketball team to wins over a pair of nationally ranked UAA foes.
The 6-foot-2 Oldshue led the team in both scoring at 20.5 points per game and blocked shots (3.5 bpg) as the Eagles defeated No. 21-ranked and league leader Washington University and the No. 17-ranked University of Chicago. In addition, Oldshue tied for first on the squad in rebounding (8.0 rpg) and shot 68 percent (17-of-25) from the floor in helping Emory up its overall record to 17-5, 8-3 in the conference.
In a 75-66 triumph over Washington University, Oldshue paced the Emory scoring attack with 21 points, ending the contest 10-of-15 from the floor, which included her sinking her lone three-point field goal opportunity. She tallied 14 second-half points, knocking down seven field goals in nine tries, in sparking the Eagles to a 45-34 scoring edge over the final two quarters. She followed that performance with her sixth double-double of the season, a team-high 20 points and game-best 13 rebounds in a 60-57 decision over Chicago. Oldshue converted seven-of-10 from the floor and six-of-eight from the charity stripe in posting her sixth outing of 20 or more points. She registered nine points in the final stanza that helped Emory secure the victory. Oldshue also tied her career high with six blocked shots (Emory tied school record with 14 rejections) and in the process set a program single-season record with 48 blocks, bettering the previous standard of 43 set by her head coach, Misha Jackson (2012-13).
