GREENPORT — Columbia-Greene hasn’t lost a home game this season as the Lady Twins won their fifth straight Tuesday night, beating out SUNY Broome 79-30.

C-GCC rolled out to an early 20-1 lead with Tanisha Edge picking up 11 of her team’s early points.

Edge was named the Region III Female Player of the Week earlier Tuesday after leading the Lady Twins to victories over Sullivan County and Schenectady County last week, scoring a combined 44 points

After one quarter of play on Tuesday, C-GCC found itself up 23-8.

Broome managed to come within 13 points in the second quarter, but that’s as close as the Hornets would get. C-GCC plowed ahead, going on a 13-0 run to enter halftime up big, 40-14.

At the break, Edge and Anyla Harper each had 11 points while Selena Jones and Stacey Cherestal had seven apiece.

C-GCC kicked off the second half by outscoring the Hornets 16-2 and eased into the fourth quarter with a comfortable 64-20 lead.

In the final stanza, the Lady Twins eased off the pedal a bit as Broome went on a miniature 4-2 run before C-GCC shut the door on any thought of a comeback.

At the end of the night, Edge and Harper led the offensive charge with 17 points apiece. Jones added 14, Cherestal nine, Daniella Weinschreider seven, Britney Brazela five, Samantha Rodriguez four, All’aha Albright four and Amira Furtado two.

The Lady Twins (5-1) travel to Cayuga Community College (3-1) in search of their first road win of the year on Saturday. Game time is set for 1 p.m.
