Freshman forward Haiven Alvarado-Harris tried to carry Brazos with her scoring in the first half, scoring eight points to help the Cougarettes end the half tied at 17.

But Louise got a three-ball by De Los Santos and made four of five free throws, while Brazos struggled to keep pace. The Lady Hornets took a 26-23 lead going into the fourth quarter.

Alvarado-Harris tried to keep the Cougarettes in the game by scoring six points in the fourth quarter, but Louise exploded for 15 points in the period, including a 3-pointer and three more buckets by De Los Santos. The Lady Hornets outscored Brazos 15-9 in the fourth quarter to seal the win.

De Los Santos led Louise with 22 points, with Destine Ortega adding seven. Alvarado-Harris had 15 points for Brazos, with freshman Jemma Zahradnik adding five.
