FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Curry took advantage of a 50.0% shooting percentage as the Colonels defeated the Yellow Jackets, 70-56, at the Cruzin’ Classic in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Curry (6-2) got a double-double of 15 points and 12 rebounds from Samantha Corcoran. Shannon Griffith (14), Kylie Beltz (13), and Christina Deiorio (10) joined Corcoran in double figures, combining for 37 of the Colonels’ points. Curry made 50.0% of its shots from the field, connecting on 25-of-50 attempts in the win.

Randolph-Macon (1-10) got a game-high 16 points from Hannah Livermon and 15 points from Sarah Parsons. Katie Anderson had six points and pulled in a team-high 10 rebounds for the Yellow Jackets. Randolph-Macon shot 29.2% (21-72) for the game and was just 4-of-26 from beyond the arc.

The first 10 minutes of play proved to be close, featuring eight lead changes and four ties. Two free-throws from Kellie Cortina with 9:58 on the clock brought the Yellow Jackets within one at 19-18, but Curry would go on a 19-6 run to take a 14-point lead with just over one minute left in the half.

Randolph-Macon would then go on to score six-straight points, topped off by a Parsons layup with two seconds left in the half to cut the Colonels’ lead to eight at 38-30 going into intermission.

The Colonels would then open up the second stanza scoring 17 of the first 24 points, capping what proved to be a 19-5 run with a Griffith jumper that made it 57-35 with 10:15 to play.

With just over two minutes left in the game, Livermon drained a three-pointer that was followed by a Parsons layup 15 seconds later to pull the Yellow Jackets within 10 at 64-54.

That would be as close as Randolph-Macon would get as Curry would get four-consecutive points from Beltz en route to a 6-0 run to seal the game. (Game recap courtesy of R-MC Sports Information)
