The guests from Dickinson tied the game in the fourth quarter at 32-32 when Bre Tessier hit the first of a one-and-one with 4:21 left. She missed the second shot but was able hit a three-pointer from in front of the Titan bench to give the visitors a 35-32 edge seconds later.

With 3:35 left, Shelley Kathrein fouled out.

Tessier hit another basket for her sixth point in less than a minute, giving the Titans a 37-32 lead.

Molly Rayhorn’s three-pointer with 11 seconds left cut the lead to just one point, but it was the last score for the Tigers.
