Panther Women Win Big Over Greensboro, 90-59

FERRUM, Va. -- Kylene Culler had 24 points to lead Ferrum College to a 90-59 USA South Athletic Conference women's basketball win over Greensboro College this afternoon at Swartz Gymnasium.  Culler's 24 points is a new career-high for the sophomore forward from Stuart, Virginia.

Ferrum led 37-31 at halftime, but used a 12-0 run to open the second half.  Jacole Hairston started things off with a three-pointer, then Kelsey Frazier converted a layup off a fast break and Tesla Akers drilled a three-pointer from the right side.  Culler ended that run with a layup and Ferrum had a 49-31 lead at the 16:19 mark.

After a Bianca Richburg layup for the Pride, Culler made a layup at the other end of the floor to start a 14-5 run for Ferrum.  The run ended with a Kayla Goins layup at 9:06, and the Panthers were on top 65-38.  Amber Hair ended Greensboro's drought with a jumper, and the Panthers closed out the game from there with a 25-19 run.

Shea Smith just missed a triple-double with her 13 points, 11 assists and seven steals.  Akers had 12 points for the Panthers, and Frazier chipped in 10 points and seven rebounds.  The Panthers hit 33% of their three-point attempts (6-18).

Bianca Richburg had 26 points and 15 rebounds for Greensboro, both game-high totals.  Chevena Pickard and Jena Cabe each had eight points in the loss. The Pride (6-6, 2-4 USA South) shot 32% from the floor to Ferrum's 46%.  Greensboro outrebounded Ferrum 46-40.

Ferrum (12-0, 6-0 USA South) hits the road Wednesday, Jan. 16, to play USA South newcomer Maryville College at 6 p.m. in Maryville, Tennessee.  Coach Bryan Harvey's team will then be back at home for a pair of USA South games Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 19-20.  The Panthers take on #25 Christopher Newport University Saturday, and North Carolina Wesleyan College Sunday.  Both games tip off at 2:00 p.m. in Swartz Gymnasium.
