The Lady Warriors (9-17) trailed 23-13 at the half but battled back to pull within three at the end of the third quarter and then within one at 42-41 late in the fourth quarter, but LFO would pull away at the end.

The Lady Warriors had one last shot at the buzzer after an LFO turnover, but the shot would not find its mark.
