Small scored 17 of her teamhigh 19 points in the sec­ond half, in­clud­ing go­ing 10-for-11 at the foul line, to lead the (2-1) Hawks. She was named to the All-Tour­na­ment team.

New Paltz trailed 28-13 in the sec­ond quar­ter and went on to outscore Mount Union 37-16 in the sec­ond half to win. Mar­ion Di­etz had 11 points and nine re­bounds and Mor­gan Roessler 10 points, nine boards and a pair of as­sists to help guide the Hawks.
