HOPE'S CAREER NIGHT FUELS NGU WIN OVER FLYING FLEET

Due West, S.C.—Led by four double-digit scorers, the North Greenville women’s basketball team flew past the Flying Fleet of Erskine Thursday night 74-64 to improve to 8-3 on the young season.

Offensively, Alisha Hope, who had a career night, scored 18 points and collected 7 rebounds to lead the Crusaders. Hopes previous career high was 13 against Allen University before Christmas break.

Other double-digit scorers for NGU were Karly Stache and Christina Carlis who both had 15 points. Carlis also led the team with nine rebounds. Cotton, who leads the team in double digits games with eight, finished with 13 points and eight rebounds..

“We are always happy to get another conference win because it's big for our confidence,” said head coach Jayne Arledge. “Its always great to see balanced scoring, especially with our starters, having four girls in double figures is always good.”

The Crusaders are now 3-0 in their inaugural season in Conference Carolinas and will lace it up again on Saturday when NGU takes on St. Andrews in Tigerville. Tipoff between the Crusaders and Knights is scheduled for 2pm.
