F&M held a slight 27-24 lead at the break before exploding in the second half. The first half was tied five times before the Diplomats went ahead when Alexa Barbush sank a free throw, before hitting a layup, in the final 58 seconds of the first.

The Diplomats started the second half on a 12-2 run, to lead 39-26. Megan Pauley and Alison Bauer each scored four points in the run for F&M.

Pauley finished with a game-high 17 points and team-high eight rebounds. She shot 7 of 13 from the field and 3 of 4 from the line. Barbush netted 15 points and Bauer picked up 10.

Whitney Snoops recorded a double-double for McDaniel with 12 points and a game-high 10 rebounds.
