After going over seven years without a player scoring 30 or more points in a game, the women's basketball team had two players achieve the feat this past week. Grimes had 32 in the win over LaGrange and then Joanna Smith produced a career-high 30 points in an 81-65 win over Agnes Scott on Friday.

- For a second time this season, men's basketball junior Bailey Spragg recorded 10 assists in a game. The junior had 10 assists in the Scots' win over Huntingdon on Saturday. Spragg currently leads the USA South in assists per game at 5.2.

- Baseball and softball preseason USA South polls were released last week. The softball team was selected fourth in the West Division, while the baseball team was picked 10th overall. Both teams begin their seasons on Friday. Softball Poll | Baseball Poll
