Desirea Buerge scored 21 points and added seven boards, while Jasmine Green had 12 points.

Southern opened up a 14-7 lead midway through the first quarter with 12 of the 14 points coming from inside the paint and the other two coming on free throws from Henry. A three pointer from Henry with 1:58 to go in the quarter made the score 19-11, Lions and a layup from Julianna Wadsworth with 1:28 to go made the score 21-14 after one quarter of action.

A three from Maydew with 9:23 left, started the scoring in the second quarter for the Lions. Maydew followed up with a layup with 7:44 to go to make the score 26-21 and a layup from Henry with seven minutes left made the score 28-21. Northwest, however, hit back-to-back-to-back threes on their end and got within two (32-30) with 5:56 to go.

Southern, then went on a 15-2 run and pushed its lead to 15 (47-32) with 45 seconds to go and Southern took that same 47-32 lead into the break at halftime. The Lions scored 34 of the 47 points in the first half from the paint and shot 66 percent from the field.

A three from Henry with 8:27 left in the third pushed the Southern lead to 52-34 and a layup from Henry with 4:25 to go pushed the Lions' lead to 20 (59-39). A pair of freebies from Green with three seconds left gave the Lions a 67-53 lead after three.

A layup from Clark with 6:40 left gave the Lions a 78-57 lead and a pair of freebies from Buerge with 6:17 to go made the score 80-61. Northwest got as close as ten twice, the last at 82-72 with 2:30 to go, but the Lions pushed ahead and a three from Maydew with eight seconds left provided the final tally.
