TOWSON, Md. – McDaniel put together a 21-2 run in the first quarter and never trailed by fewer than 17 points for the final 31 minutes, topping Goucher 87-44 in non-conference women's basketball action on Wednesday.

Hannah Ravenscroft (Berryville, Va./Clarke County) was one of three players in double figures for the Green Terror (3-5), registering a career-best 10 points to go with four assists. Sara Pilkey (Fawn Grove, Pa./Kennard-Dale) also recorded a career high, netting a team-high 11 points as part of a bench that tallied 66 of the team's season-best 87 points. Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) added 10 points as the only starter in double figures. No one played more than 15 minutes for McDaniel.

Nicole Wolard led the Gophers (0-8) with 19 points while Mya Lewis had 10 points.

Tied at 4-all, Storer hit a jumper in the lane with 6:56 to play to spark the game-clinching run over the next 6:35. Six different Green Terror players contributed during the run.

In addition to holding Goucher to eight first-quarter points, McDaniel stymied the Gophers for just nine in the second quarter. Back-to-back Caroline Ward (Mt. Airy, Md./Linganore) 3-pointers stretched the lead to 31 before Lewis hit a triple in the final 30 seconds to make it a 45-17 game at the break.

The teams played virtually even in the third quarter before Goucher did not hit a field goal for the final 8:15 of the fourth quarter.

The Green Terror pushed the lead to as large as 45 on back-to-back fast-break layups from Pilkey and Marley Burgess (Ashton, Md./Connelly School of the Holy Child).

Burgess, Libby Dougherty (Cherry Hill, N.J./Cherry Hill West) and Hannah Zajac (Houston, Texas/Clear Creek) all added eight points. Emily Metzger (Shamong, N.J./Seneca) and Zajac led the way on the glass with six and five rebounds, respectively.

McDaniel concludes first-semester play at Franklin & Marshall on Saturday. Game time is 1 p.m.
