Indeed, Maggie Greco had pulled the Mustangs within 30-29 when Gross converted a three-point play with 5:38 left in the fourth quarter. Greco, who led the Mustangs with 13 points, scored with 1:35 left to make it 35-33. The Mustangs had a chance to tie when Gross stole the ball deep in her own end and raced coast-to-coast for a layup with 1:12 remaining.
“We’re always trying to tip the ball, get steals and go the other way and get transition points,” Gross said. “That time it just happened to flow to my hands.”
The Trojans got more into the flow than the Mustangs, shooting 8-for-15 in the second half.
