On a day where the Lady Knights would find themselves in foul trouble early and struggling on offense, Aquinas would have to rely on a strong defensive effort to keep the Alliance Aviators winless on the season. The Knights would jump out to a 8-2 lead before 3 starters would have to sit because of foul trouble in the first quarter.

Aquinas would look for different ways to score on the day and would force 13 of Alliance’s 22 turnovers in the 4th quarter before putting the game out of reach with big shots by Cassie Duplin, Kylee Knott, and Arissa Samblanet. Strong on the ball defense from Emily Moeglin, Haley Overdorf, and Avery Bussy would be the key to the run that would seal up the victory for the Knights.

Cassie Duplin would lead all scorers with 11 points, and Arissa Samblanet would chip in 8. Alliance was led in scoring by Mackenzie Fletcher who had 7.
