In the second half, the Bruins and Knights battled back and forth with the game being tied at 33-33 early in the second half. However the Bruins took charge from their. Teigan Malo had a pair of baskets on some beautiful passes from Adie Wagner, Laura Green scored on a great backdoor cut, and South had built a double digit lead. Adie had a nice coast to coast drive and got fouled for a three point play to give South a 49-38 lead with 6 minutes to go, and then hit Teigan Malo in a fast break play to push the lead to 51-38 on the next possession. And while the Knights battled hard and cut the lead down to 5, South never gave in and held on for the 9 point win. South again was balance and again saw multiple double-doubles in the game. Wagner led all scorers with 22 points and also dished out 8 assists, while Brynn Nelson had a 17 point - 13 rebound night and was joined by Teigan Malo's 14 point 11 rebound effort.
