February 22, 2008
Portland, OR - Warner Pacific snapped a ten game losing streak Friday in an 74-68 overtime win versus the Evergreen State College.
The Knights took their first lead four minutes into the first half and held it until the 59 second mark of the second half when the Geoducks took a one point lead.
The two teams then traded trips down the floor without converting a basket.
On the next possession Danica Wilson put up a lay-up with .2 seconds remaining on the clock and was fouled. Wilson was awarded two free throws where she missed the first and made the second to send the game into overtime.
There were three more ties in the overtime but the Geoducks never led again.
