Women's Hoops Falls to Saints

Women's Hoops Falls to Saints

ARLINGTON, Va. - Host Marymount University handed the Shenandoah University women's basketball team its first loss of the 2018-19 season with a 56-31 non-league victory Tuesday evening.

Marymount (3-2) scored the initial 16 points of the contest and never looked back versus the Hornets (3-1). Freshman Sierra St. Cyr scored Shenandoah's first bucket of the game seven minutes into the game.  


1st Quarter

The Saints dominated the first quarter, outscoring SU 18-4.

2nd Quarter

SU posted a five-point run midway through the stanza and the defense held Marymount to just seven points through the second. MU led 25-11 at the end of the first.

3rd Quarter

MU nearly doubled up on the SU offensive effort, extending the lead to as many as 21 following a 13-7 run. SU was able to cut the deficit back down to 16 points near the end of the third.

4th Quarter

The Saints owned 43-25 advantage heading into the final stanza and scored 13 of the game's final 19 points to provide the final margin.


"We didn't have a great night offensively," Head Coach Melissa Smeltzer-Kraft said. "As we go forward, tonight's game will prepare us better going into conference play. We played very well on the defensive end against a strong Marymount team; we held the Saints under 60 points with eight steals and nine blocked shots on the night so that is something to be proud of." 


  • Ashley Stone led SU in scoring with nine points. St. Cyr added seven coming off the bench.
  • Jordan Sondrol grabbed six rebounds, St. Cyr and Ragan Johnson added five each.
  • Shenandoah blocked nine Saints' shots.
  • The two teams split 64 rebounds.
  • The series record between the two programs is 14-0 in favor of Marymount.


The Hornets return home Sunday versus Emory and Henry in the 2 p.m. ODAC opener.
