MCKEESPORT, PA -- Led by Britney Joseph's double-double (12 points, 14 rebounds), Central Methodist University won its third straight women's basketball game Saturday with a 69-48 defeat of Penn State Greater Allegheny.

The Eagles (3-0) took a 14-4 lead over the tournament host nine minutes into the contest off a steal and fastbreak layup by Jasmine Poteete. A Joseph jumper at the 6:25 mark gave Central Methodist a 26-9 upper hand, and the visitors doubled up the Nittany Lions 32-16 at halftime.

Taylor Cornelison, who scored a game-high 20 points, gave the Green and Black a 20-point cushion, 38-18, two minutes into the second half. The Seymour, Mo., native scored six straight points for the Eagles, who have won their first three contests by an average of just under 31 points per game.

An 8-0 run midway through the second half gave the Eagles their largest advantage of the game at 27 points, 62-35. Raylyn Nuss drilled one of her two three-pointers in the contest with 5:51 left, and Central Methodist never again saw its lead trimmed under 18.

Cornelison was 7-of-13 from the floor and 6-of-10 from the free throw line. Audrey Patton added seven points and seven rebounds. Nuss and Poteete had six points apiece. Poteete and Kyra Williams each had four steals.

Taylor Fulton scored 14 points for Penn State Greater Allegheny but had 10 turnovers. Christina Floyd had 10 points.

Central Methodist dominated the battle on the boards 63-38, including 31-6 on the offensive glass.

The Eagles travel to Carlow University on Monday, November 12. Tipoff is set for 6:30 p.m. CT.
