“We cut it to a couple of points late in the second quarter, but they hit a couple of 3-pointers on us. Our rotation wasn’t very good. We knew who the shooters were, but they got open looks.”

Incline led 24-16 at the half and 35-32 after three periods. Incline outcored the D ust Devils 18-8 in the final quarter.

Cheyenne Strong led Dayton with 11 points and Maribel Ledezma added 10. Destinee Serawop contributed eight
