Men's basketball extends win streak

Tigerville, SC – After defeating Johnson Bible College by 61 points in Tennessee, the Crusaders defeated the Preachers 105-36 on Saturday night in Hayes Gymnasium as every player who stepped on the court scored in the game.

"Tonight we were tested early and Johnson Bible College played very hard," said head coach Chad Lister. "Our guys responded with a very inspired second half."

North Greenville shot a season-high 68.7% from the floor, including 42.9% from three-point range, while holding Johnson Bible to just 26.7% from the floor.

The Crusaders dominated almost every area of the game as they out-rebounded the Preachers 38-18 and forced 27 turnovers.

North Greenville was lead once again by Paul Harrison, who finished the game with 22 points on 11-12 shooting to go along with a team-high six rebounds. Luke Lattimer followed close behind with 15 points, while Kyler Booher scored 12 points and pulled down five rebounds. Jimmy Ellis knocked down three three-pointers en route to nine points off of the bench, while Ian Harris, Phillip Brown and Chris Dean scored eight points apiece for the reserves.

The Crusaders (5-2) will look to extend their four-game winning streak on Dec. 9 as they travel to Swannanoa, NC to take on Warren Wilson College.
