Around the ABL

Tonya Edwards scored 15 points, and the Columbus Quest made 59 percent of its shots in the first half en route to an 88-75 victory Wednesday night over the Atlanta Glory.

The Quest scored the game’s first 12 points and went 20 for 34 while building a 51-28 halftime lead. Columbus’ percentage fell to 35 percent (12 of 34) in the second half, but poor-shooting Atlanta could not make up the deficit.

The Glory shot just 36 percent (11 for 31) in the second half.

Edwards hit two layups in the Quest’s early run, and Columbus never led by fewer than eight points thereafter.
