McMurray also pulled down six rebounds.
The first half ended with only a four-point difference, 27-23, in favor of the Wolverines.

The Wolverines as a team hit 47 percent or their shots during the game.
Senior Hollie Beaman also had a solid night on the hardwood. Beaman dished out 11 assists coupled with her 11 points, in a total of 33 minutes.
Asumi Nakayama continued her consistent performance leading the Wolverines at the point, finishing the game with five assists and a total of six points in her 33 minutes.
