Jenni Dant led four players in double-figures with 22 points. The Blue Demons opened the game with an 18-6 run over the first six minutes, sparked by a pair of three-pointers and a three-point play by Lindsay Forsberg. The Challengers cut the lead to 18-11 on a lay-in by former Blue Demon Carla Stone before DePaul answered with seven points to take a 25-11 lead midway through the opening half.

Before every game, a patriotic Doug Bruno stands straight with his gaze firmly fixed on the American flag during the playing of The Star Spangled Banner. The same name swirls through his mind each time. Maggie Dixon. Flash back to a scene just six years earlier. A young and dynamic DePaul assistant coach had spent five seasons learning under women's basketball head coach Bruno's tutelage and was ready to take flight on her own.
