Galesburg was led by Audree Peck. She was the only player in double-figures with 16-points, 6 rebounds, a steal, and a couple of blocked shots. Lauren Livingston had 9-points.

Sterling was led by their junior, Brook Borum. She had 28-points and 16 rebounds. 10 of those offensive. They hit 24 of 51 shots in the in the ball game and shot the ball really well against the Streaks. Galesburg did force 20 turnovers and the Streaks turned the ball over 15 times, but with Sterling taking advantage and getting the points off turnovers when the Streaks were unable to do that.
