Classmate Rhaven Kemp scored 11 points and recorded five steals. Sophomore Kirsten Colgan scored 11 points while freshman Rachelle Aupont had 10 points, four rebounds and three assists.

"We fought the whole way, down to the end," said Eastern Florida assistant coach Olivia Atwell. "We gave 110 percent."
