It took nearly five minutes for either team to score, but junior transfer Jalisa Edwards was able to get the the first basket of the game. On the next Saints possession freshman Brittany Davis knocked down a 3 - pointer and the Saints were off and running. Grace kept it close and took the lead midway through the first half on a pair of free throws by Emily Bidwell.
"This win is huge not only the women's basketball program, but also for the entire school," said Head Coach Matt Hunsberger. "The girls showed a lot of heart and the will to win. Our defense and rebounding won the game for us."
