Hosting the Redettes on Saturday night, in a game heard on KCII, the Demons took the early lead and went into the second quarter up 12-9.

Washington led 30-29 at the break and adjusted in the second half holding Oden to five points in the second half. The Demons took a three point lead into the fourth and got it to a double digit lead late and then chewed some clock and hit key free throws to win 59-47.
