The Lady Vikings started off strong, but eventually fell in overtime 73-57. The two teams also played in Marshall, Mo.

However, the Lady Vikings responded and eventually built up a 46-40 advantage at the nine-minute mark off a Sophomore Center Samantha Kixmiller two-point field goal. Eventually Missouri Baptist came back and took a 53-52 lead with just over one minute remaining in regulation, but Senior Forward Gabi Morales hit a free-throw to tie the game up at 53-53 with 53-seconds left in the second half. Neither team could hit a game-winning shot in regulation, sending the game into overtime.

In the overtime period Missouri Baptist started with a 7-0 run before the Lady Vikings could hit their first shot. From there Missouri Baptist took control of the game, and held off the Lady Vikings in the 73-57 defeat for MVC.

Leading the way for the Lady Vikings was Morales who finished with a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds.
