“It really just goes back to trust," Nixon said, fighting back tears. "They trust me to make these plays. They trust me to lead this team. Win, lose, or draw, every single person on that bench is behind me, and it just makes these moments that much more special."
When asked how the team found the inspiration to take the lead, Nixon, who scored a career-high 35 points, noted their morale is likely what carried them to victory.
“The spirit of the 12th man, if you’re familiar. We keep fighting. This team is so resilient. I said it two days ago, I’ll say it again, I’ve said it all season. We never say die, never say die, and I think you saw that tonight,” she added.
