Lima, OH – The Lady Barons showed strong improvement, but dropped another heartbreaker as a last second shot hit the back of the rim, dropping the Lady Barons to 0 & 4 on the season with the 61 to 62 loss.
The game saw 23 lead changes, as neither team was able to build more than a 6 point lead the entire 40 minutes. With 20 seconds left in the game, OU Chillicothe took the final lead on a layup after breaking out of a trap at half court. The Lady Barons moved quickly up the court, but had an effort rim out as Amanda Horstman went strong to the basket while being strongly defended. The Lady Barons then quickly fouled OU Chillicothe leaving 2.3 seconds on the clock. OU Chillicothe was unable to capitalize from the line, and Lady Barons coach Julie Burris quickly called her final timeout setting up the final play of the game where Amanda Eversole’s 30 foot heave bounced off the back of the rim.
