Monarchs finish sweep of Hornets

Daily Staff Report - sports@nvdaily.com

Host Methodist University assured itself of a home game at next week's USA South Conference women's basketball tournament with a 47-40 win over Shenandoah on Friday night.

Methodist (15-9, 11-6 USA South) will finish no worse than tied for fourth in the regular season and is assured of playing at home in the quarterfinal round.

Shenandoah (14-9, 10-7) can tie the Monarchs for fourth with a victory today at Greensboro and a Methodist loss to league leader Christopher Newport, but cannot pass Methodist for fourth because the Monarchs swept the Hornets in the regular season.

In a game in which neither team shot 30 percent from the field, Methodist seized control for good with a 9-3 run midway through the second half.

With Shenandoah leading 35-34 following a Sierra Edwards free throw at the 10:50 mark, the Monarchs went on that 9-3 run to take a 43-38 lead with 4:34 remaining.

Katherine Flint brought Shenandoah to within three with a fast-break layup just less than two minutes later, but the Hornets got no closer.

Methodist finished the game by scoring the final four points. Flint appeared to have hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to make the final 47-43, but the shot was later ruled late.

Edwards led the Hornets with 14 points and 12 rebounds off the bench.

Michaela Myers paced Methodist with 16 points.

Shenandoah held a 50-42 advantage on the glass.
