That win, 4-1, meant the Bulldogs were headed to the Sweet 16 for the third year in a row.

Fresno State (21-8) would see its season end five days later to Northwestern in Tulsa, Oklahoma. However, the doubles team of Melanie Gloria and Tinesta Rowe would go on to finish that season as the national runner-up.
