McDonogh (21-7) rallied on a floater by Dajah Logan (six points, three steals) and a three-point play by Brianna Jacobs (10 points, three steals) with 6:19 left for a 36-34 lead. Edwards answered Calhoun's free throw with her 3-pointer that gave McDonogh its biggest lead, 39-35.

That's when Scaife came alive and sparked a 7-0 run, and the Cavaliers never looked back.

"I think we took a little breath when we got her in foul trouble," McDonogh coach Brad Rees said. "We felt pretty good and kind of relaxed, but we never got into it mentally."

The coach, who started three sophomores and two juniors, was still impressed with his team's effort, that also included 10 points from Andrea Robinson and 11 rebounds from Jameira Johnson.

"I'm so proud of them. We have come so far since we were destroyed by them in December," Rees said. "Just being here was just a major accomplishment."
