PENSACOLA, Fla.--Cumberland women's basketball came out of the gates on fire holding the Eagles to four first quarter points and cruised to a 30-point win on the road to snap a three-game losing skid. 

Cumberland (5-6) jumped out a quick start and continued rolling in the second half to cruise to the win. The Phoenix went 31-of-68 (45.6%) from the field and drained a season-high 12 three-pointers.
