Medina did still hold a 37-33 lead with 1:45 remaining after a layup by Molley Gross but CSAT rallied with a key 6-0 run to claim the win. Back-to-back layups off turnovers by Surenaty Davis-Patterson keyed that run. She finished with 12.

Gross scored 12, Je’ne Brown 9, Emily Kams 8, Maddie Williams 7 and Holly Heil 2 for Medina which led 11-7 after one quarter and 17-16 at the half.

Two jumpers by Kams followed by a late layup by Heil gave the Mustangs the slender half-time lead.

The Mustangs built the lead to nine, 29-20, at the three-quarter mark as Brown had two buckets, Williams a three and Kams and Gross layups during the third quarter.

However, CSAT outscored Medina by 10 down the stretch to claim the win.
