A LOOK AT THE EAGLES: Off to a 4-1 start, Emory is coming off a weekend split in California, losing to Claremont-Mudd-Scripps before wrapping up the weekend with a 34-point victory over Pomona-Pitzer. 

Finishing with a 19-7 record last season, the Eagles earned an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament. Emory dropped the first round game to Trine (Ind.), 57-54. 

Emory is ranked inside the top-50 nationally in many statistical categories five games into the 2019-20 campaign. The Eagles are second in the nation in 3-point shooting (41.4%), 27th in field goal percentage (46.3%), 52nd in scoring margin (16.4) and 63rd in scoring defense (54.6).

Tori Huggins is leading the team in scoring and rebounding with 12.2 points per game and 8.8 boards per game. 

Erin Lindahl (12.0) and Allison Chernow (11.0) are the other two Eagles in double-figures. 

 

LAST TIME VS. EMORY: Sewanee and Emory last battled almost a year to the day in Atlanta. On Nov. 27, the Tigers dropped a 72-52 decision to the Eagles. 

Kinsley Logan drained three triples and free throws to finish with 12 points. Ellie Treanton posted eight points, six rebounds, and two steals and assists each. 

 

THE ALL-TIME SERIES: Tuesday's meeting will be the 54th all-time between the two schools. Sewanee and Emory first met in Dec. 1985, as the Tigers won five of the first six meetings. 

However, with a 38-15 advantage, the Eagles have won the last 10 meetings, with the Tigers' last win coming on Nov. 30, 2009 in a 97-87 win in Juhan Gymnasium. 

Emory has had its problems with Sewanee on the Domain. In 2017, the Tigers pushed the Eagles to overtime and only suffered an 84-80 defeat. 

 

CLIMBING UP THE CONFERENCE LEADERBOARD: After going 0-for-5 from downtown in the Tigers' loss to Belhaven, Kinsley Logan has responded in a big way from beyond the arc. 

The sophomore has knocked down three shots in each of her last two games, and with 15 made 3-pointers so far in 2019-20, Logan is third in the league, two behind Megan Donaldson of Millsaps.

 

GOING INTO THE POST: Abby Young, in her last four games, is dropping buckets down low for Sewanee. She has only missed five shots, posting an impressive 15-of-20 from the field. 

The sophomore has posted double figures in scoring in four of her first six games, and she is averaging 9.2 points per game.
