To say the Lady Bearcats were hot is like saying water is wet as they blistered the nets to the tune of 31 points in the first quarter and 23 more in the second. At the half, they had connected on 61% (22-36) including 7-13 (53.8%) accuracy from long distance. The Lady Eagles on the other hand, scored 9 points in the first and 8 in the second for 17 points. They sank just 8-30 from the floor and 0-8 from deep range. Conversely, they trailed 34-17 at intermission.
In the second half, BU continued their fire with 50 points and 20-36 shooting. ALC looked like a completely different squad as they put up 49 big points and sank 18-31 of their shot attempts and 2-5 from three point range. Unfortunately, the damage had already been done as no comeback would take place.
