Mandy King (Southern Maine ‘98) is in her first season as head women's basketball coach at W&L. King came to W&L after serving as the assistant women's basketball coach at Bloomsburg University for two seasons. She also was a graduate assistant coach at the College of New Jersey for two seasons following graduation from the University of Southern Maine where she earned a bachelor of science in sports medicine in 1999. During her time at Bloomsburg, King helped the Huskies achieve a 36-17 overall record and two berths to the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Tournament. The 2001-02 squad finished the season 21-6 overall and was ranked as high as second nationally in Division II. As assistant coach, King served as recruiting coordinator and was responsible for on-court coaching, scouting and game preparation. This season marks Erin Shaw's (Southern Maine ‘02) first as an assistant women's basketball coach at W&L. Shaw, a 2002 graduate of Southern Maine, comes to Lexington after serving as the assistant women's basketball coach at her alma mater last season. Amy Forbes (Salisbury ‘01) enters her second season as an assistant for the Generals. Forbes is also the assistant women’s soccer coach, and helped W&L win its second-straight ODAC title this season, and advance to the NCAA South Region Championship.


Jean Willi (Bridgewater, ‘80) is in her eighth season as the head coach at Bridgewater. She has guided the Eagles to a 145-49 overall record, three NCAA Division III appearances and the 1998-99 ODAC Championship, as well as the 1999-2000 and 2000-01 regular season ODAC titles. Willi is assisted by Cyndi Justice and David Wade. Stephanie Flamini (West Chester ‘94) is in her first season as head coach at Guilford. She took over the Quakers’ program after a three-year stint as head coach at Chowan, where she compiled a 42-32 overall record. Flamini is assisted by Scott Smith.

The Generals are squaring off with Bridgewater for the 20th time and Guilford for the 21st time. The Eagles control the all-time series with W&L, 17-2, while the Quakers control the all-time series with the Generals, 19-1.


Freshman forward Jessica Hunsinger tallied a career-high 26 points and added seven rebounds, but it wasn’t enough as the Generals fell to Randolph-Macon, 79-61, on Friday evening. The Yellow Jackets began the game with a 21-9 run over the opening 7:34 and went into the half with a 42-28 advantage. Another R-MC run, this time an 11-2 serge over the first 2:49 of the second half, gave the Yellow Jackets a 53-30 lead that they would not relinquish. Sophomore guard Louisa Feve supplimented Hunsinger’s effort with 17 points and seven rebounds. The Generals shot 46.2 percent from the floor, but committed 25 turnovers in the contest.


Bridgewater, which enters the week tied for the top spot in the ODAC, has an 18-5 overall record and a 16-3 mark in the conference following a 71-51 loss at Guilford on Saturday. The Eagles suffered a 22-0 run by the Quakers to end the second half and never recovered. Freshman guard Jessica Young led BC with 15 points, while freshman guards Shannon Scales and Katy Herr scored 11 and 10 points, respectively. Junior Krystal Hermes rounded out the team’s top scores with seven points and a team-high six rebounds. On the season, Herr leads the Eagles with 10.9 points per game and is second on the squad with 6.2 rebounds per outing.

Bridgewater freshman forward Jessica Young hit two free throws with 5.5 seconds remaining to lift the Eagles to a 54-53 win over visiting Washington and Lee back on Dec. 1. The Generals assumed a 53-52 lead with 1:24 remaining in the game as junior forward Emily Barker nailed a three-pointer. Both teams traded possessions before Young was fouled in a loose-ball scramble and hit the game-winning charity tosses. W&L trailed 34-28 at the half and by as many as 10 points in the early moments of the second half before coming back to tie the game at 48-48 on a pair of free throws by freshman guard Sarah Otey with 7:41 remaining in the game. The Generals were paced by freshman forward Jessica Hunsinger, who tallied 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds. Otey notched 12 points, while senior forward Sarah Michaels added nine points and 10 rebounds. Bridgewater was led by freshman guard Katy Herr’s 17 points and nine rebounds.

The Quakers enter the week 14-8 overall and 12-6 in the ODAC following a 71-51 upset win over Bridgewater on Saturday. Senior guard A.J. Robertson hit 6-for-8 from three-point range on her way to a game-high 24 points and senior forward Jackie Hardenbergh contributed 16 points and a game-high 10 rebounds. Senior guard Nicole McCrory rounded out the team’s double digit scorers with 10 points. The Quakers shot 48.0 percent (24-50) from the field, 61.9 percent (13-21) from three-point range and 71.4 percent (10-14) from the charity stripe.


Playing without starting guards Bethany Dannelly and Sarah Otey due to injuries, Washington and Lee was defeated by Guilford, 69-38, Feb. 6. The Generals hung tough through the first half of play, trailing by just seven points (30-23) at the break. However, a 12-2 Quaker run early in the second half put the game away. W&L shot just 26.0 percent for the game and committed 23 turnovers. Freshman forward Jessica Hunsinger led the Generals with game-highs in points (14) and rebounds (14). Senior forward Sarah Michaels contributed 12 points. Guilford was paced by Dara Burke’s 10 points and seven rebounds.


Freshman forward Jessica Hunsinger came to Lexington from Mayer, Ariz., and has made an immediate impact in the paint. Hunsinger has scored in double-figures in 20 of the Generals’ 23 games and grabbed double-digits in rebounds 13 times. She leads the Generals with 12 double-doubles and currently ranks 12th in the nation with a team- and ODAC-high 11.0 rebounds per game.


Junior guard Bethany Dannelly has been stellar for the Generals on the charity stripe. Ranked second on the team after hitting 74.3 percent (55-73) from the free throw line, she assembled the team’s longest streak with 18 consecutive made charity tosses. On the season, she has been perfect from the line nine times and since returning to the court after New Year’s, Dannelly has drained 44-of-51 (86.3%) looks from the foul line.
