Louisville regrouped during the stoppage and scored the next three baskets. Beaver stopped and popped for the first field goal. She followed by intercepting a Warrior pass on the other end and pushed it ahead to Hollifield who drove hard to the rack for two more. A few plays later, Benzel hustled after a Carrollton miss and tipped it to Beaver. A fast break ensued and Beaver’s magic continued with a cross the lane pass to Alexa Oberster who laid it. That cut the deficit to 22-21.

The Warriors tacked on a free throw next, but were held scoreless from the field for a span of 4:06 during the stretch. Lairson added a putback for the Leopards to knot the game at 23-23. Then Mikayla Poole stopped the bleeding with a drive and score to put Carrollton back in front 25-23 with 2:10 left to play in the third.
