The Lady Eagles did not relent on the defensive pressure to begin the second half and pushed the lead to 20 points 53-33 when Booker scored on a jumper four and a half minutes in. Toscano nailed a three-pointer to make it 71-58 but that was as close as the Crusaders would get as Renita Clark (Rossville, Ga.) capped the scoring with a three-pointer 63 seconds before the conclusion of the contest.
Carson-Newman improves to 13-7 while North Greenville falls to 11-9. The Lady Crusaders return to action Thursday as they travel to Brevard College. Tipoff is set for 5:30 p.m.
