Mustangs Get Past Gophers For Fifth Straight

TOWSON, Md. – A total of 16 different players scored as the Stevenson University women's basketball team captured its fifth consecutive win, downing Goucher 76-31 in non-conference action Monday night at Decker Sports and Recreation Center.

All 20 players on the roster saw action for the Mustangs (12-6), with no one playing more than 15 minutes.  Sophomore Hannah Crist and freshman Alexa Sanmartin finished with nine points apiece for Stevenson, while junior Jonyae Curry totaled eight points and seven rebounds.  Sophomore Yasmeen Nelson recorded seven points and six rebounds, with senior Kristine Tennyson and freshman Denia Campbell adding six points apiece.

The Gophers (0-17) were led by Nicole Wolard's 12 points and 13 rebounds.

Goucher led 8-6 with 5:44 remaining in the first quarter following a pair of Quichey Johnson free throws before the Mustangs closed out the frame on a 12-2 run to take an 18-10 lead on a putback by Tennyson at the 50-second mark.  Stevenson held the Gophers to just one field goal over the final 9:05 of the second quarter and closed the half on a 16-3 run to go into intermission up 38-15.  The guests held a 61-20 lead headed into the final quarter.

Stevenson shot 38.3% from the floor and held Goucher to 23.9% shooting, the fifth time the Mustangs have held an opponent below 30% this season.  The visitors outrebounded the Gophers 56-32 and forced 25 Goucher turnovers.  Stevenson's bench registered 49 of the team's 76 points.

Stevenson allowed its fewest points since a 50-30 win in February of 2011 against Trinity (D.C.) and had its largest margin of victory since a 71-17 triumph over Bard in December of 2006.

Stevenson returns to MAC Commonwealth play Wednesday night when it travels to Lebanon Valley for a 6:00 contest.
