Her performance marked the most assists by an SU player in one game since Feb. 24, 2010. She also had six rebounds and a steal.

In 27 minutes off the bench vs. Goldey-Beacom, Gold scored eight points (6-of-6 at FT line), had four assists and one steal. She was named to the 2013 Wolf’s Bus Lines Classic All-Tournament Team for her play in the games against NYIT and GBC.
