Crusaders earn second straight win

Misenheimer, N.C. - Cameron Carter added another double-digit scoring performance to her resume on Monday night as her 15-points helped the NGU Women's Basketball team to a 56-47 win over Pfeiffer.

The Crusaders shot 41-percent from the field while the Falcons shot just 26-percent. Ty Broadwater had eight points and led the Crusaders with eight rebounds while Chantel Strahorn had seven points off the bench to help NGU.

North Greenville led by 14-points heading into the fourth quarter but the Falcons put together their best performance of the night, outscoring NGU 17-12. The Crusaders were able to hold off the late Pfeiffer rally, but not before the home team cut the lead to single digits for the first time since the six minute mark of the third quarter.

Emily Wampler secured the win with a free throw that secured NGU's second win in as many games. It's the first time this season the Crusaders have put together back-to-back wins following a Saturday victory over Southern Wesleyan.

The Crusaders, now 5-11 overall and 3-6 in Conference Carolinas play will hit the road again on Wednesday to take on Erskine College in Due West, South Carolina. The Crusaders and Flying Fleet will tipoff at 5:30pm.
