Senior Mae Redmond and first-year Erin Tobes had 10 points each. Tobes’ 10 points are a new career-high, and was perfect from the line, going 4-of-4 while adding two assists and two rebounds.
First-year Lexi Miller had her third consecutive game with double-digit rebounds with 12. Miller added four points, two assists, and a block. Fellow first-year Aislynn Dixon added seven points and two steals, and two rebounds.
