The Tars fought back, taking a 47-44 lead off of an Amber Heistan three-pointer with 10:39 remaining.
 
Barry, however, used a 19-8 run, which included treys from Tilde Ahlin, Shanna Suttington, and Christina Thompson in the final minutes to defeat the Tars.
 
In the game, the Tars and Bucs combined for 17 three-pointers. Ahlin sank four-of-11 for the Bucs and Heisten hit four-of-eight for the Tars. The Bucs were 33.3% from beyond the arc and Rollins was 36% from three-point land.
