Freshman guard Maria Capito drilled a pair of 3-point shots midway in the second quarter as the Hornets were within five at 20-15. But the 6-3 Plummer blocked two shots down low then converted an and-one to make it 34-21 at the half.

With Plummer and Lookabill scoring inside, the Golden Eagles quickly expanded their lead to 20 enroute to a 52-26 lead after three quarters.

Capito was the only Salisbury player in double figures with 12, followed by Tyzarea Alexander with seven and Bryanna Caldwell with six.

The Hornets try to bounce back on Tuesday at Lexington.
