Keysha Moore, Ashley Grimes and Gabrielle Goudy provided Selma with a triple threat that was too much for Stanhope to handle.

Moore led all scorers with 20, and Grimes and Goudy each had 14 to lead Selma to a 74-39 win.

The Saints (8-1) intercepted passes to fuel their trademark transition game. Moore hit a 3-pointer to give Selma an 11-2 advantage early in the first quarter, and the lead never got back into single digits.

By the end of the first quarter, the Saints had run their way to a 26-9 lead. It reached 40-16 at the half, and they were ahead by as many as 48.

Stanhope’s longest run of the night came from its bench. The Mustangs (0-4) scored 8 unanswered, but still trailed 67-37 with 2:49 left in the game.

Amanda Deramus led the Mustangs with 13 points, and Tasha Davis scored 10.
