RALEIGH, N.C. -- Meredith College basketball scored the last 11 points in Sunday's home game to hold the visiting Pfeiffer Falcons to a 92-69 finish. Kimberly Schuh posted a career- and game-high 25 points, hitting 9-12 from the free throw line.
Ruthie Daniels subbed into the game with less than three minutes left on the clock and scored back-to-back three-pointers, her first career points as an Avenging Angel. Madison Gladwell followed with her only one from behind the arc this afternoon, and Meghan Pleasants laid in a pass from Gladwell in the final seconds to close out the game. The run pushed Meredith to a season-high 69 points this season with their best three-point percentage at 38.5 and a near-best shooting performance overall with 38.1 percent.
In spite of a game-leading shooting percentage from the field and the stripe, Meredith continues to be plagued by turnovers, recording 34 today compared to just 18 from Pfeiffer. The Falcons inside position led to 27 offensive rebounds for 27 second-chance points as well.
Pleasants posted 11 points with seven rebounds, and Janah Hassell notched a career-high 9 points and seven rebounds. Gladwell finished with seven points, dishing out four assists, and Chandler Hines matched Daniels' six points, adding four rebounds.
Pfeiffer's Sydni Bickford led her team with 17 points, three steals, and Grayson Harris tallied 13 points with nine rebounds, including six on the offensive end.
The Avenging Angels step away from competition to close out the semester and return to action Saturday, Dec. 16, playing host to Wisconsin-Oshkosh. Tipoff is slated for 2 p.m. and will feature a live broadcast with live stats.
