Alex Allen, Copy Editor~
Saturday, Feb. 10, marked the final regular season home game for the Lynchburg College women’s basketball seniors. The Lady Hornets faced off against Washington & Lee University and defeated them 66-47.
Before the game began, the three seniors on the women’s basketball team were honored in front of LC fans and family members. These seniors included forward Brittany Afolabi-Brown, guard Olivia DeFrancesco and forward Caroline Naumann.
During the game, all three seniors scored in double figures leading the team to its 20th win this season. Afolabi-Brown had a total of 10 points and six rebounds. Defrancesco added a team-high of 20 points going 4-6 from the three-point line, and Naumann contributed 14 points and 10 rebounds for her 13th double-double this season.
Throughout their entire four years at LC, these three seniors have won a total of 86 games, including the win on Saturday. They were also a part of the first-ever Old Dominion Athletic Conference Championship win and NCAA tournament win in the women’s basketball program history.
When asked how her Senior Day went, Defrancesco stated:
“Senior Day was filled with a lot of emotions, but we made sure to put our focus on the game first, and then, celebrate after. Thankfully, the season isn’t over yet.”
The next two games for the Lady Hornets will be on Tuesday, Feb. 13 at Randolph-Macon and Saturday Feb. 17 at Emory & Henry.
