PITTSBURGH, PA -- Raylyn Nuss and Sammie Gathercole combined for 23 points as Central Methodist University defeated Carlow University in a low-scoring affair, 44-32, on Monday evening.

The 32 points marks the lowest total scored against the Eagles since the Green and Black defeated Harris-Stowe 83-32 on Nov. 16, 2010.

Central Methodist (4-0) jumped out to an 11-1 lead through the first nine minutes of the game. Gathercole, who had 11 points and nine rebounds in the game, and Nakia Robinson hit two early treys to give the visitors an early cushion, and the Celtics (2-1) managed to hit only four shots (4-of-28) in the first 20 minutes.

Five straight points from Gathercole, followed by a made jumper from Taylor Cornelison at the 8:08 mark, increased the Eagles' advantage to 20-5. Samantha Mobley's short jumper with 2:02 left in the first half cut the deficit to 20-9, but a Britney Joseph bucket gave Central Methodist a 13-point upper hand at 22-9 at halftime.

Central Methodist swelled its second-half lead to 18 points on three separate occasions, with the last coming with 11:46 remaining in the game. A Gathercole shot from behind the arc gave the Eagles a 36-18 advantage.

Carlow answered with a 12-2 run. Two free throws by Jessalyn Timko trimmed the difference to eight points at 38-30, but the home team could get no closer. Nuss, who finished with 12 points, drained two three-pointers in 1:05 to push the visitor's lead back to 14 points, 44-30, with 45 seconds left in the contest.

Cornelison and Robinson finished with six points apiece. Cornelison also had eight rebounds. Joseph had five points and a career-high 15 rebounds as the Green and Black dominated the boards 54-30, including 17-7 on the offensive end.

Lynzi Mueller tallied a team-high 10 points for Carlow. Moberly and Timko had nine apiece. Moberly also recorded nine rebounds.

Both teams struggled shooting the ball. Central Methodist was 29.3-percent (17-of-58) from the field but made nine shots from distance in 40 minutes. The visitor's defense suffocated the Celtics throughout the evening, allowing only 11 made shots (11-of-53) on 20.8-percent shooting.

Central Methodist participates in the Saint Mary Maui-Midwest Classic on Friday and Saturday. Tipoff against Ottawa University on Friday is set for 6 p.m. CT.
