PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas (AP) — Yvonne Ejim scored the go-ahead basket inside with 12.4 seconds left and Gonzaga survived three missed shots by Tennessee on the final play to win in the third-place game at the Battle 4 Atlantis by a final of 73-72.

Ejim scored 20 of her 22 points after halftime to go with nine rebounds for the Bulldogs (5-1), who closed a three-day stay in the Bahamas with two wins against ranked opponents.

Jordan Horston finished with 19 points for Tennessee (2-4), which fell 12 spots in Monday’s new AP Top 25 poll after losing to now-No. 20 UCLA in Sunday’s semifinals. They went 1-2 in their Atlantis appearance, falling to 2-4 for the first time since the 1981-82 season.
