Rockford pulled back within one -- but Victoria Leyh responds for Janesville, hitting from downtown -- she led the way with 14 -- and just before half -- Britney Hanson launches up a deep 3 and hits --Wildcats went to the break with a 28, 23 lead.

In the second half -- Rockford would make it a game -- Emma Staudt draws a foul, somehow gets it to go capping a 5, oh run to tie it at 28 --but Janesville was too strong down the stretch. Hanson spots up and knocked down the jumper -- she had 13 -- Wildcats up 5 --and Hovenga helps put it away in the end -- Janesville's off to the second round picking up a 58, 46 win.
