The Lady Eagles struggled to get their offense going at the out set of the contest and trailed the Wolverines 12-8 after the first quarter.  MSJC would respond by outscoring SBVC 28-7 in the second period to grab a halftime lead of 36-19.  An 11-2 run to start the second half gave MSJC all the cushion they would need as they led 65-40 headed to the fourth.

Delacy Brown led the Lady Eagle offense with 22 points.  She also grabbed 7 rebounds and passed out 7 assists.  Kaila Gower added 20 points for MSJC while Britney Thomas recorded a double double with 13 points and 12 rebounds.  The double double for Thomas was her 20th of the season.  Marissa Williams added 7 points off the bench for the Lady Eagles and also had 4 rebounds and a pair of assists.

The win moved MSJC's record on the season to 23-1 overall they are 4-0 in Pacific Coast Athletic Conference North Division games.  San Bernardino fell to 1-2 in conference play, they are 12-9 overall.
