An old-fashioned three-point play by Abel kept the Lady Bucs down by 13, at 25-12, with 6:01 left in the second quarter.

Down 32-14, the Lady Bucs went on a 7-0 run capped off by a Gabby Parke putback to close the gap to 11, at 32-21.

University ended the half on a 9-2 run making it a 41-23 contest at the intermission.

A 7-0 run by the Hawks to start the second half pushed their lead out to 48-23.

B-U managed just three field goals in the third quarter and trailed by a 58-30 margin heading into the final quarter.

The final quarter was all even at 12-12.

Kenna Maxwell led the Lady Bucs with 18 points while Abel added seven.
