Lady Stars advance to regional final in 3 OT thriller

WeBo to face Chatard at 8 p.m. at Danville

(Continued)

Danville —

In the second overtime, it was Tri-West's turn to jump out in front. Two free throws by Marisa Meyer and a 3-pointer by Sprecher gave the Bruins a 52-47 lead with 3:15 left in double overtime.

After each team split a pair of free throws, the Stars came back to tie the game, getting a basket from Harrison and a three-point play from BayLee Mitchell to knot the score at 53 with 2:33 left.

Harrison put the Stars up 56-55 with 19.1 seconds left by spliting a pair of free throws, but Tri-West was fouled with 7.8 seconds left. They split the two free throws and Mitchell's 3-pointer from the wing rolled out to send the game to triple overtime.

Schelsky said they just told the girls to keep playing hard throughout the overtime, even though they weren't playing their best game.

Western Boone finished 18 of 66 from the field (27.2 percent) and turned it over 25 times.

"Not to take anything away from Tri-West because they played great, but that was one of the worst games we have played in a long time," Schelsky said. "I joked with them heading into each overtime that I was glad we were going into another one because maybe then we could play four good minutes of basketball. I am not sure that we ever fully did, but that was just a great game. We would get up five, they came back. They got up, we came back. Neither team wanted to lose and that was a good, old-fashion Sagamore Conference battle."

Harrison fouled out early in the third overtime, ending the game with 22 points and 18 rebounds. Without their leading scorer and rebounder, the Stars turned to two of their other seniors.

Nicole Chance hit two free throws with 2:53 left to give Western Boone a 58-56 lead.
