Lady Scots upset second-ranked Gannon in overtime

EDINBORO — In one of the biggest wins of head coach Stan Swank’s career, the Edinboro women’s basketball team handed No. 2 Gannon their first loss of the season 75-72 in overtime at McComb Fieldhouse on Saturday afternoon.

The Fighting Scots extended their winning streak to seven games while improving to 12-3 overall and 6-0 in the PSAC West. Gannon dropped to 17-1 and 6-1, respectively.

The game featured seven ties and 12 lead changes in a back and forth affair between the top two teams in the PSAC West. Gannon largest lead was eight points and last led by that amount up 16-8 with 13:14 left in the first half. Edinboro’s largest lead was three points, which they held with 5:20 remaining in the first half (24-21) and for the final 17 seconds of the game.

Edinboro trailed for most of the second half until Darche’ Jackson hit a three-pointer with five minutes remaining in the second half to give the Fighting Scots a 60-59 lead, their first lead in 18 minutes.

Following Jackson’s 3-pointer, there were four lead changes and three ties to close out regulation. Jackson’s jumper with 1:21 remaining would give the Fighting Scots a 64-63 lead. On the other end, Valerie Majewski fouled Nettie Blake with 57 seconds left to play. Blake made one of the two free throws to tie the game at 64.

In the final minutes the Scots missed the front end of a one-and-one and turned the ball over. Kelly Sundberg missed a jumper as the clock expired to send the game into overtime at 64-64.

The Lady Knights scored the first four points of the extra period to go ahead 68-64 with 3:21 remaining. After missing her first two shots of overtime, Jackson responded by making her next two shots. Her jumper with 1:44 left in overtime tied the game at 68.

The two teams would then trade the next four baskets. Valerie Majewski, who had just five points in regulation, hit a 3-pointer with 1:06 left to give the Scots a 71-70 lead. Jen Papich responded soon after, making a layup to give the Knights a 72-71 lead with 49 seconds to play.

The Fighting Scots turned to Laurel Lindsay on the other end. With 25 seconds left in the game, the junior drove to the basket and made a layup to give Edinboro a 73-72 lead. Blake would turn the ball over on the subsequent possession. On the in-bounds play, the Scots got the ball to Majewski who was immediately fouled. With 17 seconds left, the junior guard hit both free throws and the Fighting Scots led 75-72. Majewski scored five of the Scots final seven points, doubling the amount she had in regulation.

Gannon had one last chance but a three-pointer as the buzzer sounded fell astray.

Jackson led the game with a season-high 22 points. The senior guard also added five assists and three rebounds. Lindsay finished with 15 points and led the team with seven assists. Majewski had 10 points and six rebounds.

The Lady Knights were led by Blake who finished with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Papich was the only other Gannon player to score in double-digits, finishing with 16 points.

Poll

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
