KEY TEAM STATS
The Golden Eagles made 20-31 (64.5%) shots including 8-13 (61.5%) from
beyond the arc in the second half to break away from the Crusaders.
The Golden Eagles made a 9-0 run from 17:25 to 14:04 to go up 14-4 on
the Crusaders early in the half. That
was Cornerstone's largest lead of the half. Madonna hung tough throughout the
first half even though they trailed from the start of the game. The Crusaders made a 7-1 run to finish the
half and went into the locker room only down 32-31. Cornerstone came out and increased the lead
to 10 points (43-33) in the first 3 ½ minutes of the 2nd half. Madonna responded with a 6 point run to bring
the score to 43-39 but that would be as close as they would get for the
remainder of the game. Cornerstone
quickly pushed the lead back to double digits and got the lead to as much as 25
points on three different occasions the last of which (83-58) came with 1:37
left on the clock. Cornerstone finished
the game with a 85-65 win over Madonna.
The Golden Eagles will play at Aquinas on Saturday at 3:00 p.m.
