The Lady Billies started off well, leading East 12-10 after one quarter. The Spartans then outgunned Man 26-4 in the second quarter to grab a commanding 36-16 halftime advantage. Greenbrier East outpointed Man 19-14 in the third to lead 55-30. A 17-7 fourth by the Spartans then set the final score.
