The Lady Blue Hose led by as many as eight points in the opening half and though Catawba would continue to trim the deficit to a single bucket, the Lady Indians could not tie the contest. Catawba trailed by two in the last 30 seconds of the opening half, but a pair of free throws by Bonnie Werner (Kennesaw, GA), then a three-pointer by Noel Livernois (Greenwood, SC) with a second left gave Presbyterian a 38-31 edge at the break. Presbyterian would increase its lead to double digits in the second half and led by 11 with three minutes to play when Catawba made a run.
