Game 27
Lafayette vs. Army
February 24, 2010

The Leopards sure know how to give their fans a thrill as it took overtime for Lafayette to capture a 54-52 win over Army. With only four seconds remaining in overtime, junior Lauren Jackson broke through the Army defense for a layup and a Lafayette win. Jackson, who finished with 18 points, was joined in double figures by LaKeisha Wright, who matched her season high with a 17-point performance. Army led 22-18 at intermission and 35-24 with 15:24 on the clock. Ashley Springer drained a three to bring the lead back to single digits and Jackson followed with a three-point play that made it 38-32 with 13 minutes to play. A Jackson free throw made what had been a 12-point Black Knights lead shrink to one (38-37) and Wright knotted it at 40-all with a free throw with 5:45 remaining. Melissa Downey's free throws with three minutes on the clock put Lafayette ahead 44-42. Anthony tied it at 46 with 30 seconds on the clock, forcing the Leopards to call a timeout. After failing to get a shot off, they got the ball back with 1.6 seconds remaining but Wright's jumper bounced off the rim, forcing overtime. Wright handed a 50-49 lead back to Lafayette with two free throws less than two minutes into the extra session. Sarah McGorry followed with two more free throws for a 52-49 score midway through overtime before Laura Baranek's three tied it at 52. It remained tied at 52 when Army called a timeout with 32 seconds on the clock. A Black Knights turnover gave Lafayette possession with four seconds and Jackson came through with the game-winning layup.
