Viscuso, Saints throttle past Wolverines by 49 to stay perfect in CAC

DOVER, Del. – Behind four Saints with double-figure scoring nights, the Marymount women's basketball team throttled past Wesley College on Wednesday night on the road, 83- 34, to move to 7-0 in Capital Athletic Conference play, 12-2 overall. 

Leading the way for the Saints was senior Nicole Viscuso with a season-high 20 points behind 9-for-12 shooting. It's her 10th game this season in double figures, seventh straight. 

Not far behind her with 15 points was sophomore Regan Lohr, who is fresh off her second CAC Player of the Week and ECAC Player of the Week. Senior Leah Hurst and junior Tyffani McQueen each added 12 points. 

Hurst not only had a great game in terms of scoring, but she also tied for a team-high of eight rebounds with freshman Taylor Love, and tied for a game-high five assists with sophomore Tenesha Green. Love's eight rebounds marked a career-high, along with her eight points as well. 

The Saints dominated the game in every aspect, shooting 52.5 percent from the floor, the fourth time this season MU has shot about 50 percent. Shooting 46.1 percent for the season as a team, the Saints currently rank 10th in the country in field-goal percentage. 

They also controlled rebounds (44-28), assists (24-5), points in the paint (48-16), and bench points (16-0). More impressively, on the defensive end, MU forced 25 turnovers and converted 31 points off of them. 

Marymount will look to continue its dominance in league play on Saturday, January 13, as the Saints return home to startup a four-game home stand with Mary Washington. The game is labeled as the Alumni Game, with former Saints' basketball players competing in a game of their own in the morning. Tipoff for the women's game is set for 1 p.m., in the Verizon Sports Arena.
