THE FACTS
McDaniel (7-4) 70, Goucher (5-7) 56
What: Non-conference women's basketball game
When:
Thursday, Jan. 3
Where: Westminster, Md.

THE SKINNY STORY
McDaniel put together a 10-run in a 2-minute, 13-second stretch that spanned the end of the third quarter and early fourth quarter to break a 40-all deadlock en route to a 70-56 win over Goucher.

THE LEADERS
• Anna Mondoro (Dumfries, Va./Homeschool) led the Green Terror with 32 points, including a program-record nine 3-pointers.

FOR THE FOES
• Alayna McFadden led the Gophers with 20 points.
• Nicole Wolard added 12 points and nine rebounds.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• The Gophers – behind baskets from four different players – jumped out to a 9-0 lead in the game's first 5:27. After an Allyson Shipley (Manchester, Md./Delone Catholic [Pa.]) jumper broke the shutout, Mondoro went to work. She scored 16 of her team's next 17 points to give McDaniel a 19-14 lead at the end of the first period.
• After neither team could score for the first 3:19 of the second quarter, a 6-2 burst by the Gophers closed the margin to 21-20 with 5:51 to play in the period. Two Shelby Apostol free throws drew the game even at 24-all with 1:28 showing but Mondoro once again drained a triple – her fifth of the first half – and a Hannah Ravenscroft (Berryville, Va./Clarke County) steal-and-layup stretched the lead back out to five before a Nicole Wolard layup closed the halftime margin to 29-26.
• The Green Terror advantage swelled to 36-28 in the first 3:04 of the third period before four straight points from Wolard and an Anise Williams free throw trimmed the deficit to 36-33 with 5:17 showing. Madeleine Thompson (Poolesville, Md./Poolesville) drained a wing trey, however, to push the lead back to six. Seven straight Goucher points tied the game at 40-all with 1:21 to play in the period. A Mondoro free throw, however, and 3-pointer quickly gave the hosts the lead once again. A single Emily Metzger (Shamong, N.J./Seneca) free throw made it a 45-40 game heading to the fourth.
• A Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) steal-and-layup and Mondoro triple made it a double-digit lead for the first time just 61 seconds into the final period. Back-to-back treys from Mondoro and Thompson stretched the lead to 63-48 with 4:12 to play before the teams traded baskets the rest of the way.

THE INSIDE STORY
• The nine 3-pointers broke a four-way deadlock of seven for the program record that included Mondoro's seven-triple outing last season.
• Mondoro's 32 points were the most by a McDaniel player since Lindsey Nichols netted 33 at Gettysburg on Jan. 27, 2016.
• The other 14 players who played for the Green Terror combined for 38 points.
