Leslie Matson poured in 17 points and snatched 10 rebounds, and Katy Searing scored 12 and tallied 16 rebounds for the Eagles.
Shawna Koss and Jana Merchlewitz received All-Tournament honors for LaCrosse, and Kristi Thill joined Steinert on the All-Tournament team for the Muskies.
The Muskies, now 2-0, will travel to Rockford on Tuesday night for their next game.
