TIGERVILLE, SC--Mary Ann Langford drove baseline to the left of the basket and hit an acrobatic jumper to lift Erskine College 78-76 Monday night in Hayes Gymnasium. The Flying Fleet improve to 3-16 on the season, while North Greenville falls to 9-10.
The game was back and forth the entire second half, but with just over two minutes left, the Fleet held a six-point lead. NGU went on a 6-0 run to tie the game on an Eboni Davis layup with 59 seconds to play. Jean Marie Harris drained a 3-pointer to put Erskine up by three points at the 00:39 mark, but Robin Warner pulled the Crusaders even with a triple of her own with 12 seconds remaining.
Erskine called a timeout with four seconds on the clock and drew up the play for Langford. She took the inbound pass and won the game for the Fleet. The Crusaders had 0.5 to get a shot off, but Davis' desperation 3-pointer fell short.
Kristy Vaughn led the Fleet with a game-high 19 points and nine rebounds. Harris added 16 points, while Audrey Timmerman and Langford chipped in 13 and 11 points respectively.
Debbie Wyatt led the Crusaders with 17 points. Jaleesa Gladden added 12 points. Warner and Davis each scored 11 points.
The Crusaders will be back in action Thursday night at Morris College at 6:00 p.m.
