Boyd also tallied six rebounds, five assists and two steals in 36 minutes to help the Midnight Blue & Gold secure its 11th-consecutive triumph vs. its MAC West Division rival.

Senior Kaayla McIntyre added 14 points and five helpers in 36 minutes, while junior Sara Rokkanen tied her season high with 13 points off the bench.

The Rockets also benefited from junior Mariella Santucci, who nearly recorded the second triple-double in school history. Santucci finished with nine points, a game-high nine boards and a contest-best seven dimes in 39 minutes.
