Steadily keeping pace and chipping away at the Vikings lead, Fischer put the Saints up 19-18 with a three-pointer at the 4:50 mark.

Coming out of the break, the second half started off by trading baskets before the Saints took full control about three minutes into the period. Over the next seven minutes of action, Marymount clamped down on defense and put the game away courtesy of a 20-0 run over the Vikings.
