The Lady Bulls came out in the second half determined to put away the pesky Lady Ravens led by Delayzha Dixon and Andresia Alexander who are both quick and athletic.  They accomplished their mission when another athletic guard, the Lady Bulls Nia Daniel turned her game up a notch to score 12 of her 27 points.  Also, the Bulls dominated under the boards to control the tempo of the game outscoring the Lady Ravens 23-12 in the third period for a 63-40 advantage.

In the fourth period the Lady Ravens would win the period scoring 17 points to the Bulls 15, however, this was not enough to make any kind of comeback against a very strong team.

The Lady Bulls are now 10-1 overall, and 3-0 in the Southwestern Conference.  The Lady Ravens are 7-2 overall, and 1-2 in conference competition losing their last two games against conference teams.
