Talisa Rhea of Juneau capped her 21-point night with the winning basket in Seattle University’s 74-70 victory over Saint Francis [Pa.] in the Dental Service Holiday Hoops Tournament at KeyArena.

Rhea sank 8 of 13 shots from the floor en route to posting a new season high. But none of her shots were as important as the running layup she converted with 17 seconds left to break a 70-70 tie.

The 5-foot-11 playmaker added 5 assists, 4 steals and 3 rebounds.
