The game was part of the Region 16 schedule for both teams. The Lady Roadrunners honored their sophomores at halftime of the men's game.

Goodwin contributed a career-high 23 points and one blocked shot. Freshman guard Olivia Dooley chipped in with 10 points.

"I thought we struggled a little bit in the second and third quarters," said head coach Nicole Collier. "We knew that Crowder was not going to go away. In the last five minutes of the game, I felt like our group was just able to grind it out. We buckled down and made plays and didn't give up easy looks. We got great offensive contributions from Quincenia and Grace tonight. We have to get better at controlling our turnovers. That game was a must-have for both programs. Every region game is critical for seeding purposes."
