Laura Klimchock led the Bearcats (9-12) with 33 points while Janelle Reed fired in 24 points, including five three-pointers. Klimchock also went over the 1,000-point mark Saturday night.

Grove City trailed 41-33 at halftime and still trailed by just seven, 63-56, with eight minutes remaining. However, Saint Vincent pulled away for good with a 17-4 run.
