Junior Forward Elise Coberly lead the way for the Lions with 16 points, 3 assists and 13 rebounds. Senior Alicia Fagan collected 12 points and 4 rebounds, while sophomores McNeely and Trombley each collected 11 points. The Lions maintained the lead from the 4 minute mark onwards, continuing to surge ahead, the greatest lead 20 points in the 4th quarter. The Lions dominated the scoreboard percentages of field goals, 3pt field goals, rebounds and assists.
