Cheyney settled on a 31-26 half-time advantage.
Kutztown came out of the locker room on fire, scoring on their first five possessions. The Golden Bears scored the first eleven points of the half to take a six point lead three minutes into the half. Cheyney cut the lead to four on a jumper by DeJesus but Kutztown quickly pushed the lead to double figures that the Lady Wolves could not overcome.
