The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor women's basketball team trailed just once and opened up a double-digit first half lead on the way to an 88-79 victory over Hardin-Simmons Thursday evening in Abilene.

The Cru would stretch the lead to as many as 11 points in the second quarter and took a 45-36 lead into halftime. UMHB led by 14 points midway through the third period and Hardin-Simmons never got closer than three points the rest of the way as the Cru coasted to the victory.
