William & Mary (2-3) seemingly couldn’t miss a shot to start the game; making 11 of its first 13 shots to build a 22-8 lead in a little over five minutes. A lackadaisical defensive effort forced Lady Govs head coach Carrie Daniels to bench four of her starters by the six-minute mark. Austin Peay played the majority of half with three freshmen and two sophomores on the court.

Austin Peay (1-5) didn’t suffer its customary shooting drought in the first half. Rather, the Lady Govs couldn’t keep pace with the Tribe.

Shelby Olszewski [2]Austin Peay ultimately would close within six points as sophomore Shelby Olszewski made three-pointers on consecutive trips with less than a minute to play. Yet William & Mary responded with Kaitlyn Mathieu’s three-pointer to take a 43-34 halftime lead.

After shooting nearly 55 percent in the opening half, William & Mary was primed cool off in the second half. However, they defied that expectation by shooting an even-better 58 percent in the second half. The Tribe pushed their lead to 20 points, 64-44, at the 13:15 mark, courtesy a 14-4 run.

Nicole Olszewski [3]Austin Peay would cut the lead to 12 points several times during the final 10 minutes as junior Nicole Olszewski found her range. She made five points as part of a 7-0 run that ended with 8:11 remaining then hit back-to-back threes later in the half to get the deficit to 12 points again, 80-68, with 3:09 left. A pair of Nwokocha free-throws got APSU to its closest margin, 86-76, with 34 seconds left.

Kristen Stainback [4]Sophomore Kristen Stainback and Nicole Olszewski each scored 13 points as Austin Peay’s season-best 76 points went for naught. Nwokocha added 12 points and six rebounds while Martinez grabbed a game-high 10 rebounds. The Lady Govs were held to 42.9 percent (27-of-63) shooting.

Taylor Hilton led William & Mary, which score d a season-best 88 points, with 23 points and Janine Aldridge added 22 points. The Tribe made 12 three-pointers as part of a 56 percent (32-of-57) shooting performance.

Austin Peay returns to action when it meets Vanderbilt in a 7:00pm, Wednesday in Nashville.
