A flurry of play and constant fouling to force the bonus situation finally stopped the clock inside 20 seconds. Pfeiffer missed the front end of a one-and-one situation.
The Trojan women pushed the ball downcourt and the Falcons knocked the ball out of bounds. Nesmith's jumper clanged off the front of the rim as the buzzer sounded.
