WILKES-BARRE, Pa.--Stifling defense helped Eastern Women's Basketball to a 65-50 win over the King's College Monarchs on Saturday.

The Eagles held the Monarchs to 28.6 percent shooting from the floor (18-for-63) and forced 18 Monarch's turnovers. Eagles' freshman center Emily Lavin denied seven Monarchs' attempts.

To go with the seven blocks, Lavin scored 10 points, grabbed 14 rebounds and dealt four assists.

Junior forward Meghan Nowak led all scorers with 21 points, shooting 7-for-12 from the floor and a perfect 7-for-7 from the free-throw line. Nowak went off for 15 points in the second half.

Gina DiDomenico added 12 points, and Kaleigh Boreman and Kaitlyn Dougherty each added eight points.

In the beginning of the first half, both teams went through long dry spells and with just over five minutes left in the half, the game was knotted at 15-15. Eastern's Kaleigh Boreman opened the floodgates when she drained a 3-pointer with 5:06 to put Eastern up 18-15. The trey started an 18-8 Eastern run over the remaining five minutes of the half. Dougherty finished a floater in the lane as the first half ended to give Eastern the 33-23 lead at halftime.

The Eagles brought consistent pressure with a halfcourt trap and built their lead to as large as 19 in the second half.

The Eagles had their best game of the season from the free-throw line, shooting 12-for-14 (85.7 percent).

With the win the Eagles improved to 9-6 overall and 4-0 in the Freedom Conference.

The Eagles host FDU-Florham (ranked No. 10 USAToday, No. 11 D3Hoops) on Wednesday.
