Ava Giansiracusa poured in 20 points in Mercy’s return to the court, leading the Tigers to a 49-24 victory over Guilford on Wednesday night in Middletown.

Because of postponements of two games, Mercy hadn’t played since beating Jonathan Law on Dec. 17.

Sophie Hedge contributed 7 points for the Tigers and Kate Donlan finished with 6.

After staking themselves to a 10-point halftime lead, the Tigers pulled away by outscoring Guilford 13-4 in the third.

Miabella Diaz led the Grizzlies with 17 points.

After Friday’s home game against Hand, Mercy is scheduled to play three games next week — home versus Amity on Monday, at Sheehan on Wednesday and home against Law on Friday.
