With starting point guard Epiphany Woodson unable to go, another freshman, Damisha Moore stepped in for her first career start. Moore tied a career-high with eight points and pulled down a career-best 10 rebounds. LaToya Cunninham moved over to the point and never came out of the game, scoring 10 points.
