Game 22
Lafayette vs. Holy Cross
February 6, 2010

As the three-point attempt left Lauren Jackson's hands with six seconds on the clock, it seemed bound to go in, but instead the ball bounced off the rim and Holy Cross held on for a 50-47 win. Lafayette (4-18, 2-6), which trailed by as many as nine points, cut the lead to three with six seconds remaining. Elizabeth Virgin led all scorers with 15 points while Jackson chipped in 12, half of which came from three-point range. Rebounds proved troublesome for the Leopards, who had just 24 compared to the Crusaders' 41. The teams traded baskets to open the second half, including Virgin's second-chance basket that made it 33-27 less than four minutes into the action. Jackson drained a three to keep it a six-point contest (38-32) with 11:30 left. Jackson followed that with another three as the shot clock expired for a 38-35 score, the closest the Leopards had been since the 4:08 mark of the first half. A 6-2 Holy Cross run took five minutes off the clock before two Jackson free throws at 4:48 brought the lead back to five (44-39). Two minutes later, Sarah McGorry cut the lead to three (46-43) and Jackson's layup with just over 30 seconds to play kept it a three-point game, 48-45. With 15 seconds remaining, the Leopards had a costly turnover and were forced to foul but Holy Cross missed the front end of a one-and-one. Melissa Downey grabbed the rebound and Virgin's ensuing layup made it 49-47 with eight seconds on the clock. The Leopards were again forced to foul, but McFadden was only able to capitalize on one of her two attempts, giving the Leopards 7.7 seconds with which to work before Jackson's three-point try.
