Tiffany Cain led W-M with 23 rebounds. She also contributed four assists and two points.

Team high-scorers for W-M were Morgan Entze with nine points and Shaelin Youncs with six.

Emily Fields for WWVA scored 10 points in the first half and WWVA held a 15-14 lead at the break. After some halftime adjustments on defense, Fields was held scoreless.

"We made sure to guard Emily closer in the second half, and to get a hand up in her face on every shot," Doremus said.
