Freshman guard Lizzie Davis (Knoxville, Tenn.) scored a career-high 15 points to go with five rebounds and three assists, leading five Hornets in double figures.

Senior forward Molly Shephard (Charlottesville, Va.) recorded 12 points and 12 rebounds -- her fifth double-double of the season -- and senior forward Alex Allen (China Grove, N.C.) and sophomore guard Carolyn Noe (Fairfax, Va.) both also scored 12. Noe added a team-high four assists.

Sophomore guard Maggie Quarles (Roanoke, Va.) scored 11 points.

Randolph's DJ Jackson led the WildCats with 20 points and six boards.
