But with the Eagles trapping for their tournament life, the Pioneers managed a "run" of 4-0, remaining behind 46-45. They went 2 for 13 in that stretch with four turnovers.
"Charleston did a great job," Harkleroad reiterated, with a caveat. "The only thing I'm really disappointed in our team is I don't think we shared the ball enough, we didn't cut hard enough. We were a little complacent. We were lazy, we were flat-out lazy."
And who ended that UC drought? None other than Perry, who buried her fifth trey en route to a game-high 18 points. Cowden followed with another 3, the last of UC's 11, and a Chrissy Keir steal and fast-break basket made it 54-45 with 3:19 left.
Really, Glenville was finished at that point, never getting closer than six points. Keir helped see to that, committing just one turnover against her eight assists. No matter how tough the Pioneers' traps got, Keir and friends solved them calmly.
The Pioneers were forcing 22.6 turnovers per game entering the day and UC committed just 12.
"We've got a lot of stuff on that stat sheet, and other players might be upset if I say this, but Chrissy won that game," Collins said. "She's the one that got us there. I said with about 15 minutes to go in the game that we were going to win, based on her play against the press, making the right decisions.
"And she was phenomenal."
Ginny Mills and Kenyona Simmons scored 11 points apiece to lead Glenville, but combined to go just 9 of 30 from the floor. The Pioneers shot 33.3 percent.
