Seton Hill women make 17 3-pointers, score 127 points
Seton Hill almost hit triple digits in their game on Tuesday in West Virginia.
On Friday night, the women’s basketball team reached 100 points — and kept going.
Behind a sizzling shooting performance that produced a head-turning 17 3-pointers, Seton Hill rang up a 127-99 victory over visiting West Virginia State at McKenna Center.
The record-breaking win saw Seton Hill set single-game records for points, 3s and assists (36).
The Griffins (6-2) made 46 of 81 shots and 17 of 36 3s. They erupted for 69 second-half points and saw six players reach double figures in scoring.
It was one of those in-the-zone nights for the Griffins that left coach Mark Katarski shaking his head.
“On a night like this, you wish you could take the whole team to the County Fair and try to win some stuffed animals,” Katarski said. “We have an extremely unselfish and deep team that passes the ball very well. We met an opponent that likes to play fast just like us and this was the result.”
Tianna Stewart had 18 points, Alison Collins and Lexi Civittolo had 17 apiece, and Madelyn Fisher, Kennedi Stevenson and Courtney Cecere each chipped in 11 for the Griffins, who beat Salem 105-83 earlier in the season at home. They are averaging 87.6 points per game.
Cecere added 11 rebounds and seven assists.
Syd Rabold had 10 assists for the Griffins.
West Virginia State, which made nine 3-pointers, had four players score in double digits.
