Girls Drop Game at Buzzer
A controversial carrying call with less than ten seconds in the game gave the ball to the Bulldogs, who converted a foul shot. Raven Evans’s shot at the buzzer was blocked.
The Oaks led 34-28 at the half despite playing without senior star Dee Maddox, on the bench with an injury, and losing center Erica Hildebrand to foul trouble for part of the half.
The game was tight in the final minutes with points at a premium. Tied 60-60 in the final minute, the Oaks couldn’t get the basket that would put them over the top.
Evans led the Oaks with 18 while Briana Hale had 14 and Kristin Rempas chipped in 11. The Oaks went to the foul line only 15 times, making 11, compared to 40 times for the Bulldogs, who made 28.
