COMMANDING THE GENERALS:
Bryan Snyder (W&L 95) is in his first year as the Generals
Interim Head Coach. Snyder has been the assistant womens coach
the last two seasons, aiding the development of last years ODAC

(Megan Babst). In the fall, Snyder is the head coach of the W&L
volleyball team. The reigning two-time ODAC Coach of the Year, he
guided the Generals to their second straight NCAA Tournament appearance
this season and a school-record 32-8 mark overall. Snyder is assisted
by Amy Forbes (Salisbury 01). Forbes is also the assistant womens

a school-record 17 wins.
Twenty-second-year Head Coach Joy Scruggs (Tennessee) has amassed
a 316-227 career mark at Emory & Henry. A two-time ODAC Coach

22-5 mark last season. She is joined on the bench by Assistant Coach
Fourth-year Head Coach Richie Waggoner (Roanoke 92)
has compiled a 41-53 career mark at Lynchburg. In 2000-01 he led the
Hornets to a 13-12 record and their first berth in the ODAC Tournament
in five years. Joining him on the bench are Assistant Coaches Warner
Dyke, Lauren Hedden and Brian Puckett.
In their 18 previous meetings, Emory & Henry has defeated Washington

won this seasons first encounter, 67-53, in the King Center
on Jan. 25.
Lynchburg carries a slim 9-8 series advantage into this

THE LAST MEETINGS:
W&Ls 15 turnovers were converted into 19 Emory & Henry
points as the Wasps were 67-53 victors on Jan. 25 in the King Center.
The Wasps entered the break clinging to a 27-26 lead after shooting
9-for-27 (33.3 percent) from the field. Despite connecting on only
12-of-31 second-half shots (38.7 percent), they outscored W&L
by 13 (40-27) to pull away for the 14-point win. Junior forward Sarah
Michaels paced the Generals and led all scorers with 22 points and
seven rebounds. Freshman guard Louisa Feve chipped in with 13 points,
while sophomore forward Emily Barker added 11. The Wasps placed three
players in double figures, headed by Danielle Moore who finished with
16 points. Amy Hensley tallied 15 points and Erin Connelly totaled
Senior center Erika Whittens double-double (17
points, 12 boards) paced Lynchburg to a 62-49 win over the Generals
on Jan. 11 at the Warner Center. W&L, which outrebounded the Hornets
by six (47-41), was unable to overcome its 16.9 percent shooting from
the field (10-for-59). Whitten also added game-highs in steals (5)
and blocks (4). Junior forward Sarah Michaels led the Generals in
scoring with a game-high 19 points. Freshman guard Louisa Feve added
13 points, while senior forward Elizabeth Igo and senior center Austin
Calhoun collected 11 and 10 rebounds, respectively.
W&L wraps up its regular season slate with three road games next

(Wed. at 7:00 pm) and at Guilford (Sat. at 2:00 pm).
LAST TIME OUT:
Shenandoah used an 11-0 game-opening run and coasted to a 63-35 win
over W&L on Sunday afternoon in Winchester, Va. The Hornets outrebounded
the Generals, 37-25, and forced 21 W&L turnovers. Sophomore forward
Emily Barker recorded the first double-double of her career (career-high-tying
14 points and career-best 10 rebounds). Freshman guard Louisa Feve
added nine points.
SCOUTING EMORY & HENRY (14-6, 12-3 ODAC):
Roanoke guard Katrina Williams 29-point effort led the Maroons
to a 65-56 win over Emory & Henry on Saturday at the King Center.
Emory & Henrys 40-24 edge on the glass was nullified by
its 31 turnovers. Wasps junior guard Danielle Moore kept pace
with Williams, finishing with 20 points and six rebounds. Sophomore
guard Amy Hensley added nine points and five boards, and senior forward
Lindsay McKnight had five points and a game-best 10 rebounds. On the
season, Moore leads the Wasps and is the lone E&H player averaging
double figures (13.8 ppg). Junior guard Dawn Chewning is second on
the team, averaging 9.1 poins.
SCOUTING LYNCHBURG (12-8, 10-5 ODAC):
Lynchburg committed 24 turnovers and made just 38.5 percent of its
shots from the field (25-of-65) and fell, 75-66, to Meredith in non-conference
action on Sunday in Lynchburg, Va. Senior center Erika Whitten tallied
15 points, 14 rebounds, four steals, three assists and two blocks
to head the Hornets attack. Freshman forward Lori Fletcher contributed

pouring in 15.4 points per game. Shes joined by junior guard
Abby Pyzik, the lone other double-digit scorer on the team (12.8 ppg).

MONEY FROM 15:
As a team, W&L is getting its moneys worth from the charity
stripe. The Generals have attempted 342 free throws this season, connecting
on 73.4 percent of their tosses -- a mark which is better than eight
Several members of the Generals are closing in on individual program
records. Sophomore point guard Bethany Dannelly needs 11 assists to
tie Jessica Mortons (00) all-time mark of 228. Freshman
guard Louisa Feve (24) and junior forward Sarah Michaels (23) are
both within striking distance of Michaels record for made three-pointers
in a season (29 in 00-01). Michaels (84.1) is also on
track to break Ansley Millers (00) season mark for free
throw percentage (83.1).
Despite having committed 16 more fouls (310 to 294) than the Generals,
no W&L opponent has fouled out this season. W&L has had six
disqualifications this season.
Freshman guard Louisa Feve logged her third 40-minute night against
Randolph-Macon Womans on Wednesday. She and sophomore point
guard Bethany Dannelly are the only two Generals to play an entire
game this season. Dannelly has managed the feat nine times.
The Generals 44 points against Randolph-Macon Womans last Wednesday
was the second-fewest they have scored in a win. On Jan. 11, 1994,
W&L defeated Sewanee, 43-41, establishing a record for fewest
points in a win. Moreover, the 82 combined points between the Generals
and the WildCats (38) is the second-lowest combined point total in
a W&L win. The Generals teamed to score 75 points with Mary Baldwin
in a 50-25 win on Jan. 31, 1995.
GET WELL SOON, NO. 32:
Senior forward Elizabeth Igo (5-foot-8), a co-captain and one of two
seniors on the team, suffered a season-ending injury in Tuesday evenings
loss to Eastern Mennonite. This season Igo started eight games and
played in 15, averaging 4.1 points and 5.1 rebounds a contest.
Reminiscent of Bo Jackson: sophomore forward Emily Barker knows basketball
(two-year starter). Barker knows soccer (Honorable Mention All-ODAC
goalie). Barker knows lacrosse (three goals as a freshman). This year,
Barker knows track. This season Barker is averaging 5.9 points and
4.8 rebounds per game. She registered the first double-double of her
career with a career-high-tying 14 points and career-high 10 rebounds
on Sunday against Shenandoah.
No. 50, senior center and co-captain Austin Calhoun (5-foot-11), has
enlisted to protect and to guard the Generals paint to her utmost
abilities. This year, she has posted per-game averages of 2.6 points
and team-highs of 7.5 rebounds and 0.8 blocks.
Where Dr. Evil used the blonde Fem-Bots as a last-gasp effort to thwart
the International Man of Mystery, the Generals call upon a brown-haired
basketballing version to score points and rebound with robotic efficiency.
So far this season, freshman guard Louisa Feve has been up to the
task, averaging 13.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.8 steals
HOOPIN AND HORSIN AROUND:
After a year off, sweet-shooting junior forward Sarah Michaels has
un-retired her abundance of game and made herself available to the
Generals. After exhibiting great promise as a freshman (7.0 ppg, 2.3
rpg), Michaels has rejoined the team this year and, despite not playing
for over a year, hit the ground running. So far, she is posting averages
of 15.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. When not raining threes
and collecting rebounds, Michaels often horses around -- as a member
of the W&L riding team.
No, sophomore point guard Bethany Dannelly is not a member of the
British heavy metal band. Rather, thus far, shes been the womens-basketball-playing
equivalent of the famed Iron Horse (Lou Gehrig), who played in 2,130
consecutive games for the New York Yankees. For her career, Dannelly
has played in all 45 games, earning 42 starts. This season she is
logging an average of 38.6 minutes per game, including a 45-minute
night against Elmira (11/23). She checks in with averages of 8.3 points,
4.1 boards, 3.4 assists and 1.8 steals per contest.
