The Roanoke College women remained undefeated with a win over Salisbury in the Jean Beamer Tip-Off Classic on Saturday. The Maroons took a 58-36 win at the Cregger Center in Salem.
The Maroons led 33-26 at the half but it wasn’t until 8:39 in the third quarter before either team added to the scoreboard when the Seagulls pulled within five off a jumper, 33-28. Salisbury only scored on two more shots in the quarter while the Maroons began to pull away for a 20-point lead heading into the fourth quarter 52-32. The fourth quarter was very quiet for both teams as the Maroons held Salisbury to only four points while scoring six of their own for the final Roanoke win at 58-36.
Rose Sande led the Maroons with 15 points while JaBryah Haverkamp and Peyton Kirchner had nine each. Madison Nereu led with six rebounds while and freshman Jacquelyn DeJesse had six steals.
Now 3-0, the Maroons are off for Thanksgiving before returning to the court on Wednesday, November 30, for an ODAC game at Ferrum.
