Anderson and TaLia Burgess combined for a dozen boards with each registering six apiece.
The Cougars built up a nine-point lead after the first quarter and maintained that margin at the half with a 27-18 lead. The Red Barons came out stronger in the second half and cut the Genesee lead to seven points after three quarters and got within a pair late in the fourth, before the Cougars reestablished some breathing room and finished with the eight-point win.
Genesee hopes to continue its success in the Crossover Tournament with a game against SUNY Broome Nov. 5 at 3 p.m. at host Corning.
