Both teams traded misses in the first couple of minutes of the 4th before Sac hit a layup only to be answered quickly by CBS to keep their lead at 5, 33-28. From that point until the last 30 seconds of the game, the Lady Dragons stepped up their signature full court pressure and CBS cracked, as Sac went on a 12-0 run to swing the game their way. CBS hit a desperation 3 and a couple of field goals to pull the game to 41-38, but there wasn't enough time and Sac pulled out the victory. With the victory, the Dragons improved to a perfect 9-0 in CAL play and 18-7 overall.
