Women's Basketball Romps Agnes Scott; Daniella Aronsky Sets Single-Game Assists Record

The Emory University women's basketball team took care of business Tuesday evening, defeating crosstown foe Agnes Scott College 85-26 at the WoodPEC.

For the third time this season the Eagles were red hot from the opening tip, scoring the game's first 22 points on their way to the romp. Emory outscored the Scotties 22-0 in the opening quarter and had a 42-1 lead at the halftime break. Both quarter totals of zero and one point allowed are the fewest scored by an opponent in a single quarter in team history.

Sophomore Daniella Aronsky, who entered the game as the Division III leader in assists, continued to dish the rock at an impressive clip, doling out 14 assists in the 59-point win, setting the Emory single-season record. The previous record was 13 by Savannah Morgan during the 2012 season and marked the fourth game Aronsky has finished with 10 or more assists this season.

Senior Claire Brock, who was named to the D3hoops.com Team of the Week Tuesday morning, led all scorers with 17 points on 8-of-14 shooting and was one of three Eagles with three or more steals. Freshman Katherine Martini joined Brock in double figures with a season-high 10 points off the bench.

All 13 players that suited up and played for the Eagles reached the scoring column as Emory finished the contest shooting 37-for-83 from the floor and 9-for-12 from the free throw line. Freshman Lilah Gery finished third in team scoring with eight points and added five assists. Five different Eagles also notched five or more rebounds, led by sophomore Erin Martin who grabbed a game-high seven boards to go along with six points. Senior Charlotte Lowndes made her return to the floor after last year's knee injury and registered four points and five rebounds in the fourth quarter.

The Eagles held Agnes Scott to 20.4-percent from the floor (11-for-54) and 3-for-23 from behind the arc. Sydney Evans led the team with six points and was second on the team with four rebounds.

Emory will return to the court next Tuesday, November 29 to face another crosstown foe, Oglethorpe University, in Brookhaven.
