In the third quarter, Lausanne made a come back to make the score 14-12. Then TRA made a basket to make the lead 16-12. Lausanne eventually tied the game at 16-16.
Throckmorton had a chance to give her team the lead with an one-and-one at the free-throw line. It appeared she missed her opportunity but with  a lane violation Throckmorton got a second chance at the line.
“So I got another shot,” she recalled. “There was 22.9 seconds left in the fourth quarter when I made the last free throw. The score was 17-16.  We beat them.”
As a bonus to the Lady Rebels’ victory, the players had a chance to take a picture with Memphis Grizzlies star Zach Randolph.
