"We worked hard all year long," said Benedict coach James Rice, who guided the Lady Tigers to their second SIAC championship in three years. "Defensively, that's where we hang our hats. Our defense got us back in the game. I thought how we took control of the game was defensively."
Benedict held Kentucky State to 34.8 percent shooting for the game, and just 30.43 percent in the first half.
