ARLINGTON, Va. — With her final bucket of the evening at Marymount University (15-4) on Wednesday night, graduate student Sondra Fan slid into the top-ten all-time in scoring at Christopher Newport with 1,328 career points. Fan had 19 against the Saints, helping lead the top-ranked Captains (18-0) to a 69-52 win on the road.

She rallied after halftime, however, knocking down 7-of-9 field goal attempts for 16 points after the break to continue to add to her impressive career resume. The Poquoson, Va. native is the first player to break into the top-ten since Chelsie Schweers in 2008-09; Fan reached the top ten in her 103rd career game. 

In addition to a dominant second-half scoring effort, Fan also filled the stat sheet with a team-high five assists, grabbed four rebounds, and two steals. She was joined in double figures by senior forward Anaya Simmons, who was 6-for-9 from the field for 15 points.
