Lady Raiders Close Game on Incredible Run to Cap Comeback
The Lady Raiders were down by 11 entering the fourth quarter yesterday and were floundering with a short bench and just looked flat out tired in the third quarter. Then all of a sudden the team got on a roll and finished on an absolute tear including a 19-0 run to close the 4th quarter and open overtime.
To no one's surprise, the offensive comeback started with Vivian Gray who finished with a game-high 28 points and had a double-double with 10 assists and six boards.
The Lady Raiders continued to fight with Jackson, Murray and Faye all contributing double digits.
With 3:26 left in regulation, the Kansas State Wildcats had a 99% chance of winning the game. In the next 3:00 minutes, the Lady Raiders would reel off 10 straight points capped off by this steal and layup from Bryn Gerlich who only finished with four points but had a +/- of +25 while playing nearly 35 minutes of game time. She'd add a block, six rebounds, and six assists to her box score as well.
The Lady Raiders would own overtime with all the momentum and finish the game with a score of 83-75 outscoring the Wildcats 36 to 17 over the final quarter and overtime. Gray had 16 of her 28 points in the fourth quarter and overtime.
The Lady Raiders now head north to Ames, Iowa to play the Cyclones on Saturday at 2 pm. The Red Raiders also play on Saturday with tipoff scheduled for 3 pm against the Kansas State Wildcats.
