Hanley again answered the call for the Lady Govs, driving down the right side of the lane and making an off-balance jumper to give APSU another two-point lead with 6.5 seconds remaining. Jacksonville State attempted to drive the length of the court, but got trapped in their offensive end and called timeout with 1.9 seconds remaining.

On the ensuing in-bounds play, Morrow started in the low post but moved up to the three-point line and received a pass with her back to the basket. She turned and faced the rim as she put the shot up and the shot found nothing but net as the horn sounded.

However, Jacksonville State roared back with a 20-7 run over the next eight minutes, tying the game on a Candace Morton free throw.
