The Mustangs would opened the second half with a 12-6 run to build a 54-39 advantage on a Dianna Jones fast-break bucket just over 3:15 into the period.

The Javelinas pulled to within eight with a 10-3 run to make it 57-49 with 13:04 left. Jones had six points and a steal that led to a bucket by Rosalie Cutri in the run.
