Dannelly’s 87 assists this year match her assist total from last season. Junior guard Louisa Feve is second on the team with 68 dimes (4.0 apg).

Feve needs just 12 more assists for the duo to accomplish that feat for the second consecutive season.

Senior guard Bethany Dannelly, junior guard Louisa Feve, and sophomore center Jessica Hunsinger are all moving up in the W&L record book.

Feve has climbed into fifth place on the all-time scoring list with 888 career points. She is 112 points away from becoming the fifth General to enter the 1,000 point club. Hunsinger has moved into fourth place on the career blocks list with 77 blocks and needs seven more to move into third place.
