WILLIAMSBURG, Va. - The College of William & Mary made four first-quarter 3-pointers Saturday, jumping out to a 22-8 lead over Loyola University Maryland after the end of the opening stanza, and the Tribe went on to a 70-49 non-conference victory.

CaLee Gelbaugh matched her career-high with 13 points for the Greyhounds, and Courtney Vannoy also tied her career-best, recording the same 10 points she had in Wednesday’s win over Norfolk State University.

The Tribe (4-1 overall) made two more three in the first four minutes of the second quarter, and it later extended its advantage to 23, 40-17, on a Nari Garner transition basket with 1:19 left in the half. Loyola (2-4) got two baskets from Courtney Vannoy before the end of the period, but Victoria Reynolds put William & Mary in front, 42-21, at the break.

Loyola opened the third quarter with nine of the first 11 points as Stephanie Karcz and CaLee Gelbaugh layups booked a Bianca Boggs jumper in the first two minutes. Molly Taylor then knocked down a three for the Greyhounds, and Gelbaugh followed with a layup to get Loyola within 14, 44-30.

William & Mary scored the next four points, but Madeline McDonald had a basket, and Gelbaugh made two free throws at 5:24, getting Loyola back within 14, 48-34. The Tribe, however, reeled off 10 of the next 13 points to stretch its advantage back to 21, 58-37, with 3:27 remaining in the frame. Loyola would not get closer than 19 from that point until the final buzzer.

Stephanie Karcz led Loyola with seven rebounds and four assists, while Ashley Hunter added five boards.

William & Mary finished 8 of 19 from 3-point range and shot 51.8 percent overall from the field. Reynolds was one of five players in double-figures for the Tribe, matching Gelbaugh for game-high honors with 13 points.

Loyola has a week off before playing its next game, a 1 o’clock tilt on Saturday, December 2, at Mount St. Mary’s University.
