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.
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.
