Greensboro wins behind long ball
Terrell, Duncan combine for 40 points while Pickard adds 17
HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- Red-hot 3-point shooting by Greensboro, including a 4-for-4 effort by guard Andrienne Terrell, lifted The Pride to an 83-66 win against Saint Vincent (Pa.) in Friday night's NCAA Division III Women's Basketball Tournament first-round game at Juniata College's Kennedy Sports + Recreation Center.
Terrell and Danielle Duncan each finished with 20 points for Greensboro, who improved to 27-2 and advance into Saturday's second-round game against Juniata (Pa.). Guard Chevana Pickard tacked on 17 points while Nikki Wilborn had 12 points with seven assists.
Duncan also grabbed a team-high seven rebounds, while Terrell also dished out seven assists.
Greensboro shot a white-hot 55.1 percent (27 of 49) from the field, including a 10 of 17 mark (58.8 percent) from 3-point range. The Pride took care of business at the line as well, connecting on 19 of 22 free throw attempts on the night.
But it was The Pride's ability to answer any Saint Vincent comeback effort with a rally of its own that allowed Greensboro to pull away from the Bearcats.
Trailing by 11 points with just under six minutes remaining in the first half, Saint Vincent's Melissa Mansur dropped a 3-pointer and Maria Baroffio added a layup less than a minute later to pull the Bearcats to within six, 31-25, with 4:02 showing in the half.
Greensboro proceeded to go on an 11-0 run to end the half, including a pair of layups by Pickard and a 3 by Terrell, to take a comfortable 42-25 lead into the locker room at halftime.
Greensboro kept its double-digit lead throughout much of the second half, with Saint Vincent only twice briefly reeling The Pride back into single figures.
Saint Vincent (24-5) forward Brittany Sedlock was 5 of 14 from the field and 7 of 7 at the line for a team-high 18 points, while guards Maria Baroffio and Emily Fenton added 11 and 10 points each. Sedlock and forward Devin McGrath each grabbed seven rebounds to lead the Bearcats on the glass.
The Bearcats shot a respectable 42.4 percent (25 of 59) from the floor, and were 8 of 9 at the foul line.
