With 8:58 left in the half a free throw from Jessie Althoff (Jr., F, Becker, Minn.) evened the game for the final time during the half, 22-22.

With 7:27 left in the game the Cougars capped an 8-0 run with a hoop by Mikenna Greathouse to grab a 59-58 lead. Both teams fought hard to take the lead tying the game five more times in the last six minutes. A missed jumper by USF kept the game tied 70-70 as the clock ran out and the teams went into a five minute over time.
