The pink jersey were worn to support the Pink Zone initiative, a nationwide college basketball effort to raise money for breast cancer research.

The Eastern Michigan Eagles finished with an impressively well-balanced offensive attack. Sydney Huntley scored 11 points, while Cassie Shrock and Paige Redditt both had 10. For Western, post presence Ebony Cleary recorded 12 points and 11 rebounds.

The win gives the Eagles a mark of 19-7 (9-5 MAC), and the Broncos decline to 7-20 (2-12 MAC).
