Neal went on to clinch the win for OCU at the foul line.

Neal also had eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

“I just did it for my team, and mostly for the seniors,” Neal said. “We've been working hard since Day 1.”

OCU’s seventh titles tie Southern Nazarene for the most NAIA Division I women’s basketball titles.

MacKenzie became the fifth OCU player to win the NAIA Division I Tournament MVP.

“What a lot of people don't know about Kayla MacKenzie is she's playing a position she's never played before,” OCU coach Latricia Trammell said. “She started playing the point guard position in December. For her to come out here that confident from December to this point right here and lead her team to a national championship says a lot about her. She's a nursing major, and she can be my nurse any day, because I trust her with all my heart.”
