North Andrew controlled the first half, taking an 11 point lead into halftime, only to see Mercer start a furious comeback to get back into the game in the third quarter, and, eventually, tie the game with six minutes remaining. Mercer's hopes were dimmed by a knee injury suffered by freshman standout Bailey Owens with two minutes to go. Mercer had a chance, with the ball late in regulation, to advance to the "Show-Me Showdown" in Columbia with two shots at the rim in the final seconds of regulation, but both shots came off the iron, and the game went to overtime. North Andrew dominated the extra session, ending Mercer's season at 27-2. The contest was played at Grace Gymnasium, Bishop LeBlond High School.

Kenzie Edwards had a dominant all-around floor game for North Andrew, leading her squad with 23 points, with Danielle Chambers adding 18. Bailey Owens and Lindsay Wyatt both scored 16 points for North Mercer. North Andrew, one year after losing to Mercer in the state quarterfinals, will advance to the "Show-Me Showdown" in Columbia, and a semifinal matchup with Chadwick on Thursday afternoon at 12 o'clock at Mizzou Arena.
