The Lady Vikings started off strong, but eventually fell in overtime 73-57. The two teams also played in Marshall, Mo. Nov. 20 in another game that came down to the wire in a Missouri Baptist 64-62 victory.

The Lady Vikings took control of the game midway through the first half. After falling behind by a 21-20 score at the 10 minutes mark, the Lady Vikings finished the half strong eventually leading by as many as eight points after Freshman Guard Rayna Smith hit two of her total nine points to make the score 30-22. The Lady Vikings took a 33-26 lead into the halftime break. The Lady Vikings hit 40-percent of their shots in the first half, while limiting Missouri Baptist to just 28-percent shooting.

In the second half, Missouri Baptist came back quickly to tie the game up at 33-33 just minutes after the restart. 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. Also in double-digits was Senior Guard Lindsi Jackson (Barnard, Mo.)with 11 points and nine rebounds. The Lady Vikings dominated rebounding at a 54-34 margin including 18 offensive rebounds for MVC.
