CSC WBB 13 SimontonALAMOSA, Colo— The Chadron State College women suffered heartbreak for the second straight night Saturday as they lost in overtime to Adams State 66-54.

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.

Chadron State was led by senior Kayli Rageth with 14 points and 13 rebounds. Shaw finished with 13 points and both Guzman and Kate Simonton scored 8.

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.
