Junior Allison Chernow turned in a big offensive weekend as the Emory women's basketball team split a pair of games at the Transylvania Tournament.
The 5-foot-6 Chernow averaged a team-high 32.0 points, ending the weekend shooting 58.1 percent (18-of-31) from the floor, including, 73.3 percent (11-of-15) from three-point range, and 89.5 percent (17-of-19) from the foul line in contests against Transylvania and Denison. In addition, she paced the club with an average of 6.5 rebounds per outing.
In a double-overtime battle against Transylvania, Chernow totaled a career-high 39 points, the program's second-highest individual total, closing out the contest 13-of-19 from the floor with her field goal total tying the school's third-highest effort. Included in her offensive outburst was a nine-of-11 performance from three-point range that tied her with Hannah Lilly (vs. LaGrange, Nov. 26, 2013) for most treys in a game by an Emory player. She followed that performance by tying for game scoring honors with a 25-point afternoon in a 69-57 victory over Denison. She sank five-of-12 field goal opportunities, including a pair of triples in four tries, and was successful on 13 (tying the school's fourth-highest game total)-of-15 attempts from the foul line. Chernow dialed up 11 crucial points in fourth quarter that helped the Eagles to a decisive 23-11 scoring edge. She also registered a team-leading eight rebounds and doled out four assists.
On the year, Allison is averaging 17.2 points and 4.8 rebounds per outing.
