Orr Buckets 30; Scotties Down Wesleyan, 69-58

MACON, Ga. - Shavonne Orr led all players with a season-high 30 points, and the Agnes Scott College basketball team downed Great South Athletic Conference foe, Wesleyan College, by a score of 69-58 on the road this evening.

The Scotties (5-12, 2-1 GSAC) led by 13 after the first half of play, as Orr bucketed 10 points to lead a balanced scoring attack in the first stanza.  They would stretch their lead to as many as 21 in the second half, before a late run by the Wolves (1-15, 0-3 GSAC) resulted in the final 11-point margin of victory.

"I was very pleased with our transition game," indicated head coach Trish Roberts, "We played very well in spurts, but we still need to make better decisions down the stretch."

Also contributing to the effort for the Scotties was Brittaney Howard, who pitched in with 12 points, as well as sophomore forward Miranda Arnold, who had a double-double with 10 points and 13 rebounds.  First-Year point guard Jalexis Teemer had a season-high for assists, dishing out 10 to go along with 6 steals.

The Scotties, who have now swept the season series with Wesleyan, will return to the court on Saturday, February 14, as they travel to Pensacola ChristianCollege for a 2:00 p.m. contest.  Earlier in the season, the Scotties topped PCC in overtime at home.
