Women’s Basketball Knocks Off Moravian

BETHLEHEM, PA. (November 29, 2016) – Four FDU women’s basketball players scored 10 points or more to lead the Devils to an 87-83 victory over Moravian Tuesday.

The Devils move to 3-2, while Moravian falls to the same mark.

The freshman duo of Taiah Thornton and Kendrea Williams combined for the first seven points of the game, as the Devils held the hosts without a point for the first 3:32 of the contest. Williams drained two from the charity stripe to close out the first, and sophomore Kayla Croswell and Thornton opened the second with layups pushing the lead to eight.

An 11-1 spurt by the Greyhounds pushed the hosts lead to four points with 1:50 left in the half, but four straight points from senior Alyssa Mcdonough evened things up. Moravian would add a layup with 29 ticks left to go up by two heading into the break.
