The Titans made four threes and started the 3rd quarter on an 18-2 run over the first 3:34. There was a 2:20 scoring drought from both teams and Clark took advantage by going on an 8-1 run to the 52 second mark and cut their deficit to a still massive 40 points. The Titans led 84-44 after three.

The Titans were an okay 42.9 percent from the floor, but they made 5-9 threes again. Clark shot 41.2 percent. Megan Still woke up and scored 11 points on three made threes.

Megan Still's only three points came from her 10th three; Maddy Carrier had six points and four rebounds off the bench. The Titans shot an okay 43.8 percent but held Clark to 20 percent from the floor and 0-6 from three.
