Ky Crevison made four 3-pointers and finished with a team-high 20 points for Ursuline, while Emily Poling made five 3s on her way to 15 points. Julia Cardwell and Kaylin Burdick each added 12 points for the Arrows.

Tiffin (3-11) lost its fourth straight game. It was paced by Aarion Nichols, who had 14 points and 10 rebounds to go with four assists, and by Ali Schirmer, who had four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points. Allie Miller registered 11 points for the Dragons.

Ursuline took control of the game early, leading 20-13 after one quarter, and holding a 45-30 edge at the break.

Tiffin outscored the Arrows 40-38 over the final two quarters.
