Carroll's only points in the second quarter came on Joe Mostardi's three-pointer with 1 minute, 11 seconds left before intermission.
"We started playing defense in the second quarter," N-G coach Carl Arrigale said. "Everything else flows from that."

Later in the third, Harper's one-handed slam of a miss electrified the crown and made it 37-27.
