The Ladies held an 8-7 advantage with 13 minutes left in the opening half before UALR went on a 7-0 run fueled by five free throws. The home team would never relinquish the lead the rest of the way.

Arkansas-Little Rock (3-4) shot only 39.2 percent from the field and 7.1 percent (1-of-14) from behind the three-point line, but attempted 40 free throws and made good on 33 of them as three Ladies fouled out of the contest. The Trojans were led in scoring by Tamara Humphrey and Jocelyn Love as each finished with 18 points. Alicia Cash and Heather Morris each added ten points in the winning cause.

Melvin led the Ladies with 15 points and eight rebounds while Tori Alloway scored a career-high ten points in the loss. Alexis Pettway recorded nine points and Julie Danieles notched five assists and three steals to go with her eight points.
