Knights Fall at Marymount

By Nick Porter

ARLINGTON, Va.—The Southern Virginia women's basketball team was held to a season-low 44 points in a 64-44 loss against conference opponent Marymount University on Wednesday. The Saints are at the top of the CAC standings. 

Within the first five minutes of the game the Knights (3-16, 2-11 CAC) had made three 3's and the lead had changed six times, but Marymount (17-3, 12-1 CAC) would then go on a 12-0 run and hold onto the lead for the rest of the game.

Freshman guard Merideth Ouellette, who hit two of the three treys in the first few minutes, finished with nine points and three assists. Junior forward Morgan Hartvigsen led the Knights with 11 points and had three 3's. Shelby Winsor added 10 points and Shae Wilcox had a game-high 10 rebounds.

The Knights finished with eight buckets from behind the arc, compared with Marymount's three, but never went to the free throw line. The last time the Knights had a game without shooting a free throw was on November 22, 2010.

Southern Virginia will play at Penn St.-Harrisburg on Saturday with hopes to end a six-game skid. Tipoff is 1:00 p.m. in Middletown, Pa.
