WINCHESTER, Va. – Visiting Washington and Lee University outlasted Shenandoah University 48-44 in ODAC women's basketball action Wednesday evening.

Leading 44-42 with 46 seconds remaining, W&L (10-11, 6-7 ODAC) got a steal in the Shenandoah frontcourt and converted a pair of free throws to essentially seal the victory.

SU (4-18, 1-12) was able to cut the deficit back to two points, 46-44, with four seconds left following an Erin French free throw, but the Generals hit a pair from the line two seconds later to close out the win.

The closing run finished out a contest in which the two teams traded the lead eight times and were tied on four additional occasions.

Shenandoah last held the lead following a Mia Moore layup with 33 seconds remaining in the third.

W&L hit a 3-pointer to start the fourth, giving the Generals the lead for good. This advantage was never more than five points and was a one-possession contest for most of the stanza.

Junior Kirstyn Arcata paced the hosts with 16 points with Jordan Sondrol adding 10.

Casey Taylor, who hit those clinching free throws with two seconds remaining, had a game-high 19 points.

Ailyn Kelly had 12 rebounds for the Generals, who had a 43-32 advantage on the glass.
