Although Jefferson won the game, you have to give props to Willamette, who hung with the Demos better than any team I'd seen before. Particularly impressive were Alyxe Bruns, Katie Collins, and Ashley Smith, who played the full game for the Wolverines. Alyssa Garner played all but two minutes.

With help from an overtime game against Ashland, those four players played more than any others in the tournament.
