The Bears were once again led by freshman Colleen Kelly (Rochester, NY) who recorded 21 points, 15 from behind the three point arc. Kelly also pulled down seven rebounds. Recording her fifth double double of the year was junior Nyema Mitchell (Birmingham, AL) who netted 12 points and 13 boards.

Also scoring in double digits for the Bears was junior Tanara Golston (Skokie, IL) with 13 and freshman Sarah Hayes (Beaufort, SC) with 12. Golston led the Bears in assists with five as Hayes pulled down eight boards.

Freshman Ashely Van Kurin (Yorba Linda, CA) led Brown in steals with six, Van Kurin also added five points, four boards and two steals.
