Was at this game and took in the first half before heading over to UNCG to catch Eastern-Southern. I continue to be impressed by Danielle Duncan and watched closely as *4 Duncan took it to #50 for Ferrum.

The Pride over the Panthers as Jason Tuggle’s ladies keep on rolling.

Greensboro, NC — Danielle Duncan (Greensboro, NC/Ragsdale) scored a season-high 26 points and had 12 rebounds as Greensboro College (19-1, 13-0) defeated Ferrum College, 72-63, at Hanes Gym on Tuesday night. Dione Eccles (Clemmons NC/West Forsyth) (19 points, 13 rebounds) also recorded a double for The Pride. Stats

Duncan was 10-15 from the field and made 6-7 free throws. Nikki Wilborn (Graham NC/Graham) added 10 points for GC.

The win extended GC’s record winning streak to 14.

The Pride led 35-27 at halftime. Ferrum, however, got back in the game with hot shooting and tied the game at 42-42 with 15:43 reminaing after a three-pointer by Tonya Wright. However, Eccles made a trey and Duncan followed with a basket and Ferrum never got closer than two points the rest of the game.

The Panthers shot 13-26 in the second halft and 39 percent for the game. GC shot just 31 percent, but held a 57-35 edge in rebounding.

Brittney Bullock paced Ferrum (15-6, 11-3) with 14 points and 13 boards. Miranda Carasco led the Panthers in scoring with 15 points.
