The Lady Bisons took control of the game early, leading from the first shot, a jumper by Catie Woods.

On three different occasions in the first half the Lady Bisons led by 12 points. The last time they held such an advantage was 7:21 of the first half when Pate scored on a lay-up to make it 23-11.

In the second half the Lady Bisons continued to be in control, leading by 10 points at 49-39 on a lay-up Pate with 10:36 left to play.

Beginning at 10:24 Campbell went on a 13-3 run, sparked at the start by a jump shot by Letitia Dickson. A 3-pointer by Dickson with 7:14 left capped the run, and tied the score at 52-52.
