Eleven players got into the scoring column to help Potomac State build a 33-point lead at halftime as the Catamounts smoked Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference opponent Butler 104-46 Wednesday at Dana G. Lough Gymnasium.

Kirsten Rayner led PSC in both scoring and rebounding with 21 points and 12 boards. Leah Hershberger came through with 19 points, Courtney Davis added 16 and Anwanye Parks had 10. Hershberger added seven assists and seven steals to her 19 points.

The win snaps a two-game slide in which the Cats lost by a total of six points and keeps them unbeaten in the WPCC at 4-0. They improve to 14-4 overall.

Shelby Johnson led Butler by scoring 14 points and helped the Pioneers out to a 5-0 lead before being held to eight points for the remainder of the half.

The Cats play next on Sunday, at noon, against Hagerstown at home.
