Austin Peay (13-17, 12-6) grabbed the lead, 4-2, with senior Brooke Faulkner’s jumper at the 16:00 mark and would not surrender the advantage. The Lady Govs scored 10 consecutive points later in the half – freshman Nicole Olszewski capping the run with a conventional three-point play – to build a 31-18 lead with 3:29 left. APSU would take that 13-point advantage, 39-26, into halftime.

Southeast Missouri could not drop the lead back into single-digits in the second half, narrowing the deficit to 11 points, 52-41, with 9:15 remaining. But Austin Peay scored the next seven points in less than two minutes and was not threatened the game’s remainder.
