MDI was leading by 17 at the half, just before John Bapst's Jordan Turner hit a three, and at the half, MDI lead 29-15. MDI came out roaring in the 3rd quarter. They limited John Bapst to just 3 points in the 3rd Quarter and it was a 25 point Trojan lead with 2:51 left in the 3rd Quarter after the McDonald's Player of the Game Sierra Myrick hit her third three pointer of the game.
In the fourth quarter it was all Trojans, as they lead by as many as 30 with 4:20 left in the game as Kelsey Shaw stole the ball and went the length of the court converting an easy layup.
