One night after falling to Fort Lewis on a last-second shot, the Eagles’ Dallas Shaw had a long 3-point try hit off the front of the rim just ahead of the buzzer at Adams State…sending the game into overtime.
In overtime, the Eagles missed their final 7 shots and got to the foul line only twice while the Grizzlies were 10-11 from the line.
Adams State (6-6 overall and 2-5 in the RMAC) led 26-24 at halftime and was ahead the entire second half, once by seven points, until Chadron State’s Hattie Guzman hit a 3-pointer with just over two minutes to play to tie the score at 51-51.
After neither team could score again in regulation, Shaw sank a shot from in the paint to open the scoring in overtime, but Adams State dominated the rest of the extra period…led by junior Desiree Anderson, who scored 9 of her 21 points in overtime with a try and 6-8 free throws.
Anderson was just five of 18 from the field for the game, but all five of her baskets were treys. Emily Klint added 14 points and a team-high nine rebounds for the Grizzlies.
The Eagles (1-11 and 1-7) shot 42.2 percent from the field, but did not go to the free throw line in the first half, made just 8 of 16 from the line in the second half and one of two in overtime.
Chadron State will play at Black Hills State on Thursday night in a game originally set for Saturday night and still listed as Saturday in some printed schedules.
