The Comets struggled in the third quarter, making only one of 14 shots while missing all seven three-point attempts. The Jimmies scored only 12 points in the quarter, but still took an 11-point lead into the fourth.

Jamestown pushed their lead to 19 points after Emmel drained a three-ball with 2:42 left. Mayville State would get no closer than 12 points after an Andi Gayner basket at the 1:26 mark.

Bryn Woodside (SR/Albert Lea, MN) added 19 points, five assists, and three steals. Jenna Doyle (JR/Princeton, MN) pulled down 10 rebounds to go along with four blocked shots. Marina Nowak (JR/Rogers, MN) chipped in with eight points and eight rebounds off the bench.
