Dec. 29, 2010
SAN DIEGO (AP) - Chassidy Fussell scored 20 points, including a tiebreaking 3-pointer with 1.3 seconds left, to help No. 23 Texas beat Cincinnati 80-77 in the Maggie Dixon Surf 'n Slam Classic on Tuesday night.
Yvonne Anderson, who had a team-high 21 points for the Longhorns (9-3), dribbled the ball to the top of the key and sent a perfect bounce pass to the right of the arc, where Fussell made her fourth 3-pointer of the game.
The Bearcats' desperation shot at the buzzer fell short. Jeanise Randolph had 13 points and 13 rebounds for Cincinnati, which also got 20 points from Shareese Ulis. Kathleen Nash had 15 point and nine rebounds for Texas.
The game was tied seven times with nine lead changes. Cincinnati (6-5) battled back from a 10-point deficit in the second half before falling short.
The Longhorns will face host San Diego on Thursday in the championship game.
