We were tied with 1:20 left and we had the ball. We finally took care of it for over a minute, and went inside out multiple times until Krumbach found an open Sydney Remus for a layup and the foul to put us up three and get the win.” The Indians ended the game on a 14-2 run. Jessica Busch collected five steals and converted them into layups.
