For as bad as it was during the first half, the Saints responded during a dramatic second half turnaround. Aquinas outscored Madonna 48-17 during the second half which the Saints shot 52% from the field compared to 25% for Madonna. Aquinas scored the first 22 points of the second half and never looked back as the Saints went on to win 61-46.
