However, that was as close as Lynn managed to get the rest of the game. Barry outscored the Knights 44-36 in the second half including a 38-27 run to close out the contest for the win.
 
Thompson’s 26 points led all scorers and she added seven rebounds, while Lucy Martinez followed with 16 points. Princess Bailey scored all 12 of her points in the second half, but added 11 rebounds to finish with a double-double. She also added six assists, two blocks and two steals. Alisha Sanford added 11 points off the bench
 
In the first half, Thompson scored 13 of the Bucs’ first 17 points of the game including two treys to give Barry a 17-9 lead with 11:26 to play before the break. The Knights chipped at the Buccaneer led until Crystal Perry converted a three-point play on a made free throw at the 2:42 mark to tie the game, 28-28. However, the Bucs outscored Lynn 8-2 in the final two minutes, including Thompson’s record-breaking three-pointer at the buzzer, to take a 36-30 lead at the half.
 
Lynn’s Natalie Basore and Jade Williams led the Knights with 15 points apiece, while Cara Dolci came off the bench to contribute 13. Crystal Ahmed recorded the only double-double for Lynn finishing with 10 points and 10 rebounds, while added eight assists and four steals.
