On Monday, January 28th, River hosted Shadyside. The Lady Pilots opened the game in a man-to-man defense. After the opening tip-off, River and Shadyside traded baskets and small leads. With less than two minutes remaining in the quarter, River extended their lead to multiple possessions for the first time.

As the first period buzzer sounded, River committed a foul, and the Lady Tigers made two of three from the line to close the first with a 12-8 River lead. The Tigers fought their way back into the game in the second, thanks to River’s turnovers and missed opportunities.

The game was tied at 16 with 4:31 remaining, but Shadyside went on a run to end the half with River trailing 26-19. River's third quarter was not their best. They only scored 6 points, while giving up 14. River fell by the final score of 55-44.
