The Lady Eagles refused to fold. Over the next ten minutes, they methodically closed the gap and reduced it to just three (62-59) following a trey by Gemma Gray with 5:59 remaining. Unfortunately, eight straight points by Mount Vernon gave the Lady Cougars their biggest lead of the game at 70-59 with less than three minutes on the clock, and ALC ran out of time. For Alice Lloyd (1-14), Gray paced the team with 23 points, while Nickell added 17 points before fouling out midway through the second half. Her departure clearly hurt the hosts. Carla McDaniel added a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Sierra Fletcher led the Lady Cougars (7-3) with 20 points and 6 assists. On the night, Mount Vernon shot 45.3 percent from the field (24-for-53), 30.4 percent from 3-point range (7-for-23), and 60.7 percent from the free throw line (17-for-28). The Lady Eagles shot 40.4 percent from the field (21-for-52), 21.4 percent from 3-point range (3-for-14), and 76.9 percent from the free throw line.
