Gaffney, S.C.—The North Greenville women’s basketball team lost an early season rematch to Limestone College 80-56 after a sub-par second half.

The game looked as if it was going to be a contest decided by a small margin after the first half as the two teams went into the locker room separated by 2 points (Limestone 38, NGU 36). The Crusaders were 11 of 47 from the field in the first half and 3 of 5 from three point range. The Lady Crusaders struggled in the second half however making only 8 of 27 shots from the field and making only 1 0f 7 shots from three. For the game North Greenville shot 33.9 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from three point range. The Lady Crusaders did however make 14 of 17 free throw attempts. A bright for the Lady Crusaders was the play of freshman forward Landrie Fox who scored 10 points. The 10 points from fox is a new career high and the first double digit game of her career. Christina Carlis lead North Greenville in scoring with 11 points as well as collecting a team high 7 rebounds. “It was a rough game but we were very impressed with Landrie’s effort” said head coach Jayne Arledge, “we didn’t play very well in the second half but we are going on a much needed break.” The Lady Crusaders officially concluded the 2009 portion of their schedule. The team will return to the court on January 9th on the road at Wingate followed by a home game on January 12th.
