WESTMINSTER, Md. – All 15 McDaniel players in uniform scored no fewer than two points as part of a 71-38 Centennial Conference (CC) women's basketball victory over Bryn Mawr on Saturday.
Steph Perez (Harrisburg, Pa./Central Dauphin East) was the only player to reach double figures for the Green Terror (6-3, 4-2 CC), netting 18 points that included a career high-tying four 3-pointers.
Nikki Piper (Clarksville, Md./River Hill) and Rachael Rybak (Reisterstown, Md./Franklin) added eight points apiece. Piper also grabbed a team-best five rebounds while Rybak pulled down four boards to go with three steals.
Nicolette Parmese led the Owls (0-7, 0-6 CC) with 16 points.
Behind five straight points from Perez, McDaniel built a 7-0 lead and stretched the lead to 13-2 before four minutes had elapsed in the contest.
Rybak tallied six of her points during the opening run.
A single Angela Sacco (Linwood, N.J./Holy Spirit) free throw made it a 19-12 game with 9:49 to play before two Holly Constants free throws and a Sorraya Terrab layup closed the defict to three with 7:44 on the clock.
An Allie Eader (Ijamsville, Md./Linganore) steal-and-layup 15 seconds later sparked a 19-4 burst to close the half and put the hosts on top 38-20 at the break.
Emma Wingerd (Pittsburgh, Pa./North Hills) stretched the advantage to 20 in the first minute of the second half before the teams alternated baskets over the first four minutes.
Back-to-back Perez triples with 15:49 and 14:54 remaining ignited an 8-0 burst that made it a 52-24 game with 13:19 to play and seal the victory.
A Quinn Conlan jumper with 8:15 to play closed the deficit to 21 but the Owls got no closer.
With 2:23 on the clock, a 3-pointer by Allie Miller (East Berlin, Pa./Bermudian Springs) – the freshman's first points of her collegiate career – capped the first game this season in which each Green Terror player in uniform scored.
Katherine Restrepo (Wyomissing, Pa./Wyomissing Area) finished with a career-best four steals while Eader dished out five helpers.
