Jasmine Brown had a team-high 21 points as the Sea Devils picked up their intensity after the break to grab the result.

“I wasn’t happy with our defensive mindset in the first half,” said CFCC Coach Chris Harris. “Shaniya [McLaughlin] did a great job on the defensive end of the floor against Brianna Baham in the second half. She earned every point of the 20 she had.”

Baham was ranked in the top 10 in scoring average among NJCAA Division II players heading into the week.

No. 10 Cape Fear earned a season sweep of their cross-river rivals after an 86-50 victory on their home floor earlier this season. The Sea Devils finished 12-0 in conference and 23-1 overall. They open the Region 10 Tournament as regular season champions on Friday, March 4.
