Fritz's layup leads Lady 'Cats past NWOSU in OT

ALVA — Senior Kelby Fritz was the hero on Saturday evening as she converted a layup with two seconds to play in overtime, giving the Rogers State women’s basketball team the eventual  67-66 victory over Northwestern Oklahoma State at Percefull Fieldhouse.  

RSU started the overtime period with a three pointer from the left corner by Sierra Cornwell and a jumper from Leah Smith to push the lead to five points with 3:42 to play. The Lady Rangers cut the deficit to one point with a pair of made free throws by Titania Simmons and Jonna Gregory. NWOSU tied the game with 1:23 to play but Fritz hit a jumper to put the Cats back in front by two points. Dierra Gilmore hit a trey from the top of the key with 18 seconds to play to give the Lady Rangers a one-point lead. With time running down, Fritz drove down the lane banked a layup in off the glass with two seconds on the clock to give RSU the lead. NWOSU was unable to get a shot off in the final two seconds and the Hillcats move to 4-0 on the road this season.

Despite trailing for most of the second half, RSU came storming back in the final minutes of play to push the game into overtime. With 3:43 to play the Lady Rangers led by nine points. RSU battled back with a 15-5 run and high pressure defense, including three steals by Cornwell to end the half. The Hillcats led just once in the second stanza as Smith hit a jumper to give RSU a one-point lead with 52 seconds to play in regulation. The Rangers knotted the score with a free throw by LaParis Newsome. RSU had the ball with 46 second to play but couldn’t convert the go-ahead bucket. Logan Froese tallied a steal with two seconds to play, sending the game into overtime.
