Brookelynn King led the way in the scoring column with 14 points. Karli Phelps and Emma Kissner both came close to logging double-doubles; Phelps had 12 points and nine steals, while Kissner put up 10 points, nine rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Peyton Zock and Devyn Shannon both added eight points, and Ruby Magruder and Ava King had three apiece.”
