A three-pointer made all the difference in the final 49-47 win for Creighton. Carli Tritz, with her hot hand, added three with 1:11 left in the game to take the lead and silence the Falcons. She left the court in Omaha, Neb. with 12 points and she went 2-2 in three-point shots.
Even though BG lost, it was only by a basket. Chrissy Steffen put up 10 points, and both Jessica Slagle and Danielle Havel had nine.
The Falcons held the lead for most of the first half, then with a late push, Creighton went up 26-25 before the buzzer.
Creighton returned strong and held the lead until Havel hit a three to tie up the game with 3:34 left. Allison Pappenfuss followed with a jumper to take the lead, but the decision fell in the hands of Tritz with her three-point shot.
BG will return home to play Madonna University on Wed. Dec. 21, at 7p.m., for their last contest before Christmas.
