It took a while to even get points on the board.

But when the Panthers did start scoring, Spalding couldn’t stop them.

Greenville University had to dig out of a 10-0 hole to start the contest but took control in the second quarter and never looked back as they beat the Eagles 63-54 to open their SLIAC women’s basketball slate Saturday afternoon at H.J. Long Gymnasium.

After Spalding jumped out to a double digit lead, GU finally broke through on free throws by Natalie Iberg with 4:56 to go in the opening quarter. For more information see the December 5, 2023 edition of The Greenville Advocate.
