Swank Wins 400th For Edinboro

EDINBORO — Edinboro women’s basketball coach Stan Swank claimed his 400th career victory as the Scots rolled over Alderson-Broaddus 86-35 in a non-conference game Monday night at McComb Fieldhouse.

In his 24th season as head coach, Swank holds a 400-257 record with the Scots.

Edinboro cruised thanks in part to an offensive performance that saw five players finish in double figures.

Edinboro’s unselfish offense established itself early when the Scots put 10 players in the first-half scoring column as part of their 48-19 halftime advantage. Samantha Blazetic came off the bench to spearhead the Scots’ first-half blitz, tallying 12 points in just 9 minutes while converting on 6-of-7 shots from the field.

Edinboro (12-2) continued its onslaught in the second half, registering its largest lead of 51 points as the final margin of victory.

Dominating in most statistical categories, the Scots shot 55.7 percent from the field, compared to 33.3 percent for Alderson-Broaddus (1-12). Edinboro also converted 33 Alderson-Broaddus turnovers into 38 points while outscoring the Battlers 46-14 in the paint.

Blazetic finished as the game’s high scorer with 14 points while Hope Mancini and Katie Collins came off the bench to register 12 and 11, respectively.

Hailey Purcell finished as the only Battler in double figures, leading Alderson-Broaddus with 10 points.

Swank entered the season ranked 21st among active Division II coaches in career wins and first in Edinboro women’s basketball history. Since taking the head coaching post in the 1987-88 season, Swank has had six 20-win seasons and claimed a PSAC title in the 1989-90 season. The Scots’ NCAA Division II Elite Eight finish that year was Swank’s best finish at Edinboro.
