    CGB scored 39 in the game and being short handed had nothing to do with B/E foul troubles. B/E could not defend Callie Vold as she drove down the lane and were out of control with the dribble causing them to be called for at least 5 charging calls. Vold lead all scores with 24 points and forced B/E into about a dozen fouls trying to defend her drives into the paint.
