DALLAS, TX – This consolation game was the second bout of the weekend for Arizona, while it was the third game for Dallas after they beat #7 seed Santa Cruz yesterday 170-162 before falling to #2 Texas 248-89 later in the day. Arizona lost to #8 Philly first thing Friday 163-108 so they have had more than a full day to recover for this final matchup.
Arizona started with a slow creeping lead but then a 25-point jam by Bayleigh Wheat opened things up for Dallas to take the lead and never look back. It was otherwise a very well matched, aggressive game with Arizona actually winning the second half in points and lead percentage. With more consistency in the Dallas jammer lineup, their defense was able to shut down Luz Chaos and keep larger scoring jams to a minimum. Dallas finished out the weekend with another seeding upset, 153-183 over Arizona.
