Eyles picked up right where she left off in the second quarter knocking down a 3 point basket to kick play off. The third quarter was a mirror image of the first quarter with MSAC opponents trading baskets back and forth. The Lady Panthers would make a late charge with 3 minutes behind several 3 point baskets, but Jefferson would control the ball and connect from the free throw line to defend their home floor!
