But the Cardinals chipped away and eventually took a short lived 48-46 lead after Kelcey Solomon converted a pair of free throws with 11:57 to play.

Then Midwestern used a late 13-3 spurt fueled by seven points by Lloyd and a pair of David Terrell dunks to take a commanding 78-63 lead with 2:33 to play.
