Women's Basketball Falls to Salisbury in Season Finale

By Sam Armstrong

SALISBURY, Md. – The Southern Virginia women's basketball team wrapped up its season on Saturday afternoon, falling 86-69 to Salisbury University.

The Knights (12-13, 5-13 CAC) fell behind early in the game, scoring only 23 points in the first half and going into the break down by 30. The squad fought hard to the end, however, winning both the third and fourth quarters by healthy margins to pull within 17 of the Seagulls (15-10, 10-8 CAC) by the end.

In the last game of her four-year career, Jamilla Gambee poured in a season-high 23 points on 11-21 shooting while adding seven rebound and three steals. Forward Katie Garrish was the only other Knight in double-figures, scoring 12 points and grabbing a game-high 17 rebounds.

Salisbury seemingly could not miss from deep, going 10-17 at the 3-point line while the Knights shot only 2-10. Southern Virginia won the rebound battle, however, pulling down 10 more boards than the Seagulls.

The 12-win season marks the highest win total the program has had since the 2012-13 season.
