Morgan Westhoff came off the bench to chip in 16, including a perfect 6-for-6 performance from the charity stripe. Bordewick added her seven points, as did Cathy Brugman and Hailey Roderique. Alex Muff pulled down seven rebounds.

Nicole Gloor led Truman with 18 points and 12 rebounds. Twelve of her 18 points came from the free throw line. Amy Briggs added 13 points. Michalina Tomczak pulled d own 10 rebounds.

Pitt State led 32-27 after a solid first half. The team was able to narrowly hang on to its lead in the second half until a 10-2 run by the Bulldogs gave them a 49-44 lead with 7:29 to go. Pitt State fought back and went up by one again, 50-49 on a Brugman layup with 5:30 remaining. 

The Gorillas were able to stretch their lead to three, but again the fiesty Bulldogs came back and went up by one again with just under three minutes on the clock. Truman was able to stretch its lead to four with 13 seconds left. It looked like the game would be out of reach for the Gorillas, but Brigit Hesser received the in bounds pass and dribbled down the court for a quick layup to cut the Truman lead to two. 

Right away Roderique fouled Allie Norton. Norton made one of her two free throws, putting Truman up 61-58 with just six seconds to go. Brugman grabbed the rebound and got the ball down the court to Bordewick, who seemed to just keep backing up before taking the game tying shot.

The Gorillas scored the first points of the overtime, a layup by Jeronimus, and never surrendered the lead. The team built a game-high 10-point lead capped by free throws from Jeronimus with a minute left. Truman's Gloor made a free throw with 49 seconds left for the final point of the game and the final 75-66 score.
