Despite the Lady Cardinals great effort, USUE pulled off the win 69-50.

The following night NIC matched up against the College of Southern Idaho. Returning sophomore Alex Carlton, who led the NWAC during the 2018-19 season in three-point percentage, finished 5-9 from behind the arc. Carlton lead the Cardinals in scoring with 18.
