Due West, S.C. – North Greenville women’s basketball came up short in its search for the first win of the season on Saturday after a 75-50 loss to Francis Marion.

The Crusaders put together a small run to open up the first half as a 6-2 burst cut the Francis Marion lead to 18. The Patriots defense was the difference maker though as they forced 25 North Greenville turnovers, resulting in 27-points. FMU also dominated the paint, outscoring the Crusaders 32-16.

The Crusaders fall to 0-2 on the season following the weekend action. NGU will travel to Mars Hill on November 16th for a 6pm tipoff with the Lions.
