The 'Cats reeled in 16 steals in the game, the most since November 29, 2014 against Rogers State. Molly Hartnett finished with five steals, along with 10 points and seven rebounds.

Lindsey Kelderman led the Bearcats in scoring with 15 points. Caely Kesten finished with 13, and Emma Atwood scored 10 points. Kelsey Fields narrowly missed a double-double with seven points and 12 rebounds.
