At the end of the first quarter, Denison trailed 20-16 after Allyson Freiermuth beat the buzzer.  In the second quarter, Maryville's lead grew to 11 points with 1:37 to play after Madison Maples' 3-pointer.  A minute later, Denison's Alison Schafer knocked down a three, sending DU into the locker room with an eight-point deficit.

In the third, Maryville utilized a 10-3 run in the middle of the period, stretching their lead back to 11 at 45-34.

Entering the fourth, the Big Red trailed by seven and got to within five after Emily Krumpe's jumper with 7:20 left.  Things got interesting with 3:45 remaining after Addie Buzas' 3-pointer cut Maryville's lead to 56-53.  The Scots closed out the game on a 9-0 run as the Big Red missed their final eight shots of the game.

Jordan Holmes led Denison with 15 points, seven rebounds and six blocks. She is the first player in Division III history to total 1,000 points, 1,000 blocks and 500 blocks in her career.  Schafer followed with 14 points and seven rebounds in 26 minutes.  Valesha Province contributed nine points off the bench.

Maryville was led by Maples' 14 points.  Freiermuth and Rachel Hawn followed with 12 points and Lauren Biliter chipped in 11.
