Madill started with only 16 points points in the opening half, but held a four-point edge on the Lady Indians at intermission. The final quarter saw Madill outscore Comanche by five points. Brenna Green had six of her points in the final frame. Mikah Hartsfield's layup off of a missed free throw gave Madill a 43-37 advantage with 2:15 remaining in the game. 
Sweat's three-pointer with 4:18 to go in the contest propelled Madill into the lead at 36-35. 
The Wildcats battled to a 34-32 lead at halftime, but were eventually outdistanced in the second half half by the Indians in a 68-54 loss. Two Madill players scored in double figures. Joe Avery led with 23 points and Samuel Bond collected 17 points. Comanche college-prospect Jacob Hammond was a presence in the paint. He accounted for 23 of Comanche's points.
