"The girls held our composure much better," Lady Commander coach Deanna Teeter said. "Gabbie Lowe hit some crucial free throws at the end."
Center Katy Vaughan scored 17 points for Friendship while Jessi Couch added eight. Sara Hay hit two three-pointers as she, Carly Warmath and Lacey Farmer each finished with six. Lowe threw in three.
