BEIJING, China — The Lady Quakers raised their 2012 China record to 2-0 with a 52-40 win over Tsinghua University.
Bria Eslick and Shelby Kies led the Lady Quakers with 15 and 14 points, respectively.
The game was played at 3:30 p.m., 2 ½ hours after the team finished climbing the Great Wall.
“We played hard again, but we didn’t have our legs,” Wilmington head coach Jerry Scheve said. “We didn’t shoot it very well, but we gutted out a good win against a good team.”
Tsinghua had the size advantage with a front line that went 6’7, 6-2 and 6-1.
“We held our own against their size,” Scheve said.
