The Lady Eagles had built a 9 point lead in the second half, but a three pointer by Barstow with 14 seconds left gave the Vikings a 1 point lead. MSJC pushed the ball down the floor and Moreno was fouled on a shot attempt with 5 seconds left setting up the winning free throws. Barstow was unable to get a final shot off.
Moreno and Danielle Cooper led the Lady Eagles offense with 18 points a piece, Cooper also grabbed 11 rebounds. Ashley Jenkins and Danielle Reed also reached double figures with 12 points a piece, Jenkins pulled down 12 rebounds and Reed added 8 assists.
