Shawnee State got their points at the free throw line, hitting 23 of 26 foul shots.

Madison Ridout would lead the Bears in scoring for the second straight game, scoring a game-high 20 points. Brandie Snow contributed 18 points, Bailey Cummins 14, and Jonessa Moore 13 in a balanced Shawnee State attack.
