February 6, 2016

MARIETTA – The Wilmington College women’s basketball team fell to Marietta Saturday, 64-57, in Ohio Athletic Conference action at the Ban Johnson Arena.

“We got off to a slow start, which was hampered by the same problem we have been dealing with all season – turnovers and bad shots,” said Wilmington head coach Jerry Scheve.

Wilmington trailed for nearly the entire game, but trailed by just four with 58 seconds remaining, and was in position for a defensively stop. However, a foul – as the shot clock was expiring – on a three-point attempt allowed the Pioneers to step to the line. The made all three from the charity stripe to seal the game.

Sophomore Emily Smith (Bellbrook, OH/Bellbrook) and freshman Ashley Ricks (Fairfield, OH/Fairfield) were pivotal in allowed the Fightin’ Quakers to stay close. They combined for 19 points, 10 rebounds and three assists.

“We didn’t get any offense from our starters in the first half,” said Scheve. “They came in and kept us in the game, and they continued to play well in the second half.”

Smith finished with 10 points and five rebounds, while Ricks had career-highs in points (nine), rebounds (five) and assists (three).

Freshman Mackenzie Campbell (Cincinnati, OH/Turpin) finished with 14 points, while junior Mary Moyer(Martinsville, OH/Clinton-Massie) pulled down a season-high 13 rebounds.




Brandon Smith’s 31 points not enough as Wilmington loses to #7 Marietta, 98-85

February 6, 2016

Freshman Brandon Smith scored a career-high 31 points, but it wasn’t enough as the Wilmington College men’s basketball team fell to No. 7 Marietta Saturday, 98-85, in Ohio Athletic Conference action at Fred Raizk Arena in Hermann Court.

“Brandon made shots and he made plays all day long,” said Wilmington head coach K.C. Hunt. “The guys did a good job of finding him on some early kick outs that really got him going. He is a talented offensive player, no doubt.”

Smith (Lebanon, OH/Lebanon), whose previous career-high was 18 points, was 10-of-14 from the field, including 5-of-6 from beyond the arc, and was 6-of-7 from the foul line. He added two assists.

Marietta scored 15 of the game’s first 20 points to open up a quick 10-point lead, and Wilmington never led.

Despite the early deficit, the Fightin’ Quakers scored eight straight to pull to within two. The two teams traded first-half runs, and when it was all said and done in the first half, Wilmington trailed by just four.

The Pioneers pulled away in the second half, mainly thanks to their ability to hit the offensive glass. They pulled down 11 of their 19 offensive rebounds, which led to 24 second-chance points. Wilmington was out-rebounded, 41-27. With their physical presence, MC attempted 20 more free throws than Wilmington.

“I thought there were more physical and out-toughed us, especially down the stretch when they pulled away,” said Hunt. “We are going through it, and we are learning every game what we need to do to compete. But we didn’t do it enough today.”

Senior Zach McCorkle (Cincinnati, OH/Winton Woods) finished with 13 points and six rebounds, while sophomore Nathan Scott (Sardinia, OH/Eastern) tied a career-high with 11 points and pulled down a career-high six boards.
