LAURINBURG, N.C. - After being stuck in a hotel for a few days due to a severe winterstorm, Union took out its cabin fever frustrations on host St. Andrews (N.C.) in cruising to an 88-53 Appalachian Athletic Conference victory on Friday.

The game was originally scheduled for Wednesday, but the snowstorm prevented the game being played until Friday.

With the win, Union improves to 18-8 overall and 14-4 in the AAC. St. Andrews falls to 5-18 overall and 2-15 in league play.

Lydia Nash led the Bulldogs with 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting. Haley Perkins followed with 16 points and nine rebounds, while Alyson Roberts chipped in 13.

Union never trailed, but the game was close early on. Up 17-10 with 11:43 left in the half, the Bulldogs embarked on a 32-7 run to open up a 49-17 cushion with 1:43 remaining in the period. Union went on to lead 52-23 at the break.

In the second half, once Union's lead grew over 30, the margin dipped lower than 34 and the Bulldogs led by as much as 79-38 en route to the 88-53 decision.

For St. Andrews, Kayla Johnson and Ashley Jennings led the Lady Knights with 10 points apiece.

  • Union finished the game shooting 50 percent from the field, 44.4 percent from 3-point range and 70 percent at the foul line.
