The game was tied at 4-4 after two minutes and the Lady Eagles would grab a 12-6 edge at the 10:57 mark. Catawba took its first lead at 15-14 on a pair of free throws by senior Jenny Volpicelli (Concord, N.C.) with 7:34 left in the opening half. Carson-Newman led once more, on a layup by Brittaney Gooch (Franklin, Ky.) at 16-15 with 7:02 left then Cox connected on the first of her five three-pointers on the night to give the Lady Indians the lead for good at 18-16 with 5:08 remaining. Catawba finished the half on a 14-2 run to take a 29-18 edge to the break. Cox had 12 of the 14 points and assisted on the other basket by senior Kendall Prescott (Exeter, N.H.). The Lady Eagles pulled within 31-25 early in the second half on a jumper by Amy Cate (Strawberry Plains, Tenn.), but Catawba went on an 18-2 run to break the game open. Cox hit consecutive threes to cap the run as she put the Lady Indians up 49-27 with her 25th point of the night at the 13:41 mark. Catawba stayed up by 15 or more the rest of the way. Cox was the only Lady Indian to reach double figures with her 29 points.
