10:46 a.m. One quarter in, the Mustangs defense already has five blocks, numerous deflections and only two baskets surrendered against the high-powered Windsor attack. With Allison Schwertner and Evenyce Gutierrez scoring four apiece, the Mustangs lead 10-5. — Matt Schubert

12:06 p.m. The clamps came down in the second quarter, as Mullen’s long, athletic and disciplined defense held the Wizards scoreless for nearly five-and-a-half minutes. Schwertner fueled the offense on the other end, with the 6-foot-3 sophomore guard knocking down a 3 from the corner as part of a 12-0 run. A brief spurt from the Wizards near the end of the half drew the score to 22-12, but Schwertner sank a pair of free throws with 4.5 seconds left to stake Mullen to a 24-12 halftime lead. — Matt Schubert

12:31 p.m. The momentum completely turned in the third quarter, as Windsor’s zone defense flustered the Mustangs and the Wizards got hot on the other end. Alexis Backhaus got room to shoot and buried a pair of 3-pointers, the last of which put the Wizards ahead 31-29 going into the fourth quarter. — Matt Schubert

1 p.m. With her team’s title dreams on the line, Mullen senior Imani Perez delivered, sinking all eight of her free throws in the frame to rally the Mustangs to their third title in four years. — Matt Schubert
