Both came into Thursday’s game having one game in the win column.

Leto ended the first half on a buzzer beating 3-point shot from senior point guard Lianet Castillo, putting them in control, 23-16.

In the closing seconds of the game, junior Erin Dorsey gave Robinson their first lead of the half with a layup after a missed free throw. After additional free throws, the Knights put the game out of reach as the final seconds ticked off the clock.

Dorsey led the Knights in scoring with fifteen.
