ARLINGTON, Va. – The Marymount University women's basketball team played its last home contest of the 2018 calendar year on Sunday evening, taking a 77-60 victory over Gallaudet University at the Converse Family Fieldhouse.
The Saints had four players score in double figures in the contest, led by junior Regan Lohr's 24 on 9-of-18 shooting and a career-best six makes from behind the arc.
Lohr hit her first shot just over two minutes into the contest to give the Saints their first lead, 4-3, which they would hold for the remainder of the game.
Leading 9-7, Marymount used a 10-5 run to extend its lead before the end of the first quarter.
Freshman Katie McShea netted two layups to lead the spurt; she finished the game with 15 points and 11 rebounds for her third double-double of the season.
The Saints were able to break away with a 30-point second quarter, with senior Tyffani McQueen opening up frame with a three-point make for a 10-point lead, 22-12.
After Marymount continued to hold its lead through the first-five minutes of the quarter, Lohr got hot and opened the game up with four threes in the final five minutes of the frame. She totaled 12 points in the quarter and hit her fourth with 49 seconds left in the half, as Marymount carried a 49-34 lead into the break.
The Saints pushed the lead to 19 to start the second half on a McShea layup, before Lohr connected again from long range to keep the edge at 56-37.
Marymount held control of the game from there and eventually took a 20-point lead on another Lohr three-pointer, 71-51.
In the final moments of the game, freshman Bridgette Bonjo scored her first-career points, adding a layup with 29 seconds left on the way to the win.
Lohr's 24 was good for a game high, while McQueen and junior Gabriella Haddad each added 13 points, each. Haddad also added nine rebounds, and McQueen led the way with four assists.
The Saints are back in action tomorrow, Monday, December 17, traveling to Elizabethtown College; the opening tip is set for 6 p.m.
