In the first quarter the Cougars came out on fire and lead by as many as 16.  The Hornets were able to cut it 11 with the help of Angela Randall and Brionna Taylor at the end of the first quarter.  The second quarter had Columbia extend the lead to 20 points with 3:28 left.  At halftime the Hornets trailed 36-18.  Taylor led the Hornets with 7 points in the half.

The third quarter had the Hornets fighting back and was able to cut the lead down to 11 points after a shot made by Angela Randall.  The Hornets outscored the Cougars 22-17 in the third but trailed by 13 entering the fourth quarter.  Dynesha Powell and Angela Randall were both able to hit shots in the fourth but it was too little too late as the Hornets night ended with a 15 point loss.
