The Dolphins came right back and took a brief lead in the third quarter before EdCC eventually pulled ahead for good late in the fourth.

Shaleea Butler pulled in 13 rebounds and scored 5 points with Jade Garcia-Williams, Adelisa Husovic and Gabi Lofgren all contributing 6 points.
The Tritons shot 42 percent from the field and were solid at the line, going 20-24 there as a team.
