The opening five minutes of the first quarter were Co-Lin’s slowest of the season as the Lady Wolves failed to find a basket until the 5:04 mark. The Lady Wolves simply could not find the bottom of the net on the offensive end of the floor.

The threes were falling for the Lady Wolves in the second half as Co-Lin took a 37-34 lead with 5:15 remaining in the quarter. The offense showed much more composure in the third, which resulted in, better looks from the floor. The Lady Wolves led 42-39 going into the final quarter of action.

Early in the fourth quarter, action was back-and-forth as Co-Lin led 51-49 with 6:46 remaining. The Lady Wolves were never able to pull away and eventually lost the lead with just 1:15 remaining.
