It was all smiles in Bound Brook Thursday night, as the 6th-ranked Crusaders used a 26-0 first-half run to pull ahead early and beat Manville for the 16th straight time.
Senior Arianna McCleod led all scorers with 21 points in a 70-36 victory heard on Central Jersey Sports Radio, powered by Bellamy & Son Paving.
Sophomore point guard Casey Miller added 20 for Bound Brook, with three treys.
But it was the defense that fueled Bound Brook, and they got a good effort there in the paint from one of the newest Crusaders: 5-11 freshman Brenae Jones.
