In the first half, ALC did a good job of pushing the ball on offense and was stingy on the defensive end. Sparked by junior Amber Shepherd and sophomore Taylor Arthur, the Eagles pulled ahead 41-23 by intermission.

In the second half, Warren Wilson (6-4) battled to keep the contest close. However, the Lady Eagles were able to freely play everyone while still holding on to their advantage. At the final buzzer, they led by 24.

For the victors (3-4), Shepherd led all scorers with 21 points while connecting on 3 long range bombs. She added 5 rebounds.

Arthur continued her dominate play as the rugged center registered her fifth double-double of the season with 10 points and 13 rebounds. For good measure, she added 4 blocks.

Also reaching double figures was junior guard Tailor Morgan with 10 points and a game high 7 assists. The quick-silver guard added 5 rebounds and 2 steals while committing 0 turnovers.

On the night, the Eagles out-shot their foe 39.7% to 27.1% while connecting on 8 three-point buckets compared to the Owls 6. ALC also dominated the glass 50-35. In addition, they forced the visitors into 18 miscues while only giving the ball up 10 times themselves.
