Arteivia Lilomaiava rebounded a missed shot and made a layup at the buzzer Sunday to give the Santa Clara women's basketball team a 68-67 win over host Long Beach State.

The Broncos' Ashley Armstrong intercepted an inbounds pass with eight seconds left, then drove into the paint and missed a jumper. Lilomaiava, making her first start this season, grabbed the rebound and made the putback as time ran out.

Meagan Fulps led Santa Clara (4-4) with 18 points and seven rebounds. Ruta Zurauskyte scored 16 points and grabbed six rebounds, and Nici Gilday had 10 points.

"It was a heads-up play," Broncos coach Jennifer Mountain said of the final sequence. "You have to go for the steal, and that's what we were trying to do. With that much time on the clock, you just have to get it and go. Ashley did a good job but missed the shot, and Arteivia stayed with it and we were fortunate enough to put that one back in."

Santa Clara shot 38.2 percent from the field and made just 1 of 18 3-point tries. But the Broncos grabbed 21 offensive rebounds, and the 49ers (4-4) committed 20 turnovers.
