CBU 55 SMU 48
Sydney, NS - Head Coach Fabian McKenzie opted for an all Nova Scotian starting line-up that included four Cape Breton natives. First-year player MacKenzee Ryan (Glace Bay, NS) made her first start at the Sullivan Fieldhouse, leading her Cape Breton University CAPERS to their first win of the young season over the Saint Mary's Huskies 55-48. She finished as the top scorer with 15 points and also contributed 3 assists. Alison Keough (Marion Bridge, NS) also had a big game. She scored 13 points and secured 13 rebounds. As for the Huskies, Jasmine Cain (Halifax, NS) led her team with 14 points.
Turning point - Jasmine Cain hit back to back three-pointer to bring SMU to within 3 points with 3:27 remaining in the game, but the CAPERS shut the door after that by not allowing the Huskies to score again after that point. This was in large part by timely steals by Keough and Valentina Primossi (Trieste, ITA).

- Alison Keough had a double-double performance by getting 13 points and 13 boards.
- Jasmine Cain made the most baskets for the Huskies, ending her night with 14 points.
