Ryann Scott had 13 points and Tavaris Little added 12 for Johnson C. Smith (23-7), whose speed and pressure in the frontcourt posed problems for Virginia Union early.
Johnson C. Smith, which led the CIAA with nearly 10 steals per game, had five in the game's first five minutes and didn't let its lead dip below four points the rest of the way.
