The Lady Evangels (12-6, 3-4 SAC) took control in the first half when Sarah Martin scored five straight points and two free throws by Parris Price made it 19-10 at the 7:42 mark.

After USAO came within five, consecutive threes by April Williams built the lead to double-figures at 25-14 with 4:34 left and the Lady Evangels took a 32-22 lead into the break.
