On Nov. 16, the Avenging Angels basketball team faced up against the daunting Shaw University Bears, a Division II team. They battled neck-and-neck all game; each period ended with a different team in a narrow lead. With just seconds remaining, Shaw had brought the score to a tie at 77 points. Freshman Lindsay Bell scored the winning basket and brought MCBB to a 79-77 victory against the Bears.
Many Avenging Angels exhibited stellar performances on Saturday at Shaw: senior Madison Gladwell sunk a three-pointer within seconds of the start of the second frame, followed by freshman Kate Perko evening the score with a jumper. However, the most significant individual achievement of the evening was from junior forward Kimberly Schuh, who reached 1000 career points with the first bucket of the game.

“My teammates and coaches believed in my playing style and led me towards obtaining this milestone,” says Schuh. “It’s crazy to think that I’ve accomplished reaching 1000 career points at the start of my junior year; I cannot wait to see what these next two seasons bring to MCBB!” Monday afternoon, Schuh was announced USA South Women's Basketball Player of the Week.
Up next for Avenging Angels basketball are two home games, against Christopher Newport on Nov. 23 and Piedmont International on Nov. 25. We’ll see what this makes of their current overall 2-2 season record!
