JEFFERSON CITY - No. 24 Queens staved off a late Carson-Newman rally and both teams weathered an hour-long power outage in an 84-72 win for the Royals Saturday afternoon at Holt Fieldhouse.

Queens (11-3, 6-2 South Atlantic Conference) had built a 16-point lead with 10 minutes to play, following a Jamari Smith jumper.  Carson-Newman (5-9, 2-6 SAC) immediately mounted a rally, rattling off a 9-0 run to cut the deficit to 71-64 with 4:42 to play.
