Game Night Recap 11-23



No. 2 Collins Hill 52, No. 1 McEachern 51: A three at the buzzer from half court erupted the McEachern bench but Delaware State-signee Sianny Sanchez-Oliver's shot was well after the horn meaning Old Dominion-signee Eden Sample's free throw with 1.2 seconds left was the game winner. Sample was fouled on the opposite end of the floor on a rebound, sending her to the line where she would deliver the dagger. Sample finished with 11 points and 5 rebounds, but the Collins Hill guards struggled against McEachern's pressure throughout the game as the Indians forced three 5-second closely guarded violations. The Eagles slowly extended their lead throughout the game at the Parkview TOC, leading 10-9 after one, 27-25 at the half and 41-37 after three. Freshman Paris Fillingame gave the Eagles a boost with 8 points. Kyra Jefferson added 8 as well.

The 6-foot-5 forward scored 12 of her team-high 15 points in the second half including 8 in the fourth quarter, 6 points coming via the three ball. She had a late look to win the game, but her miss landed in the hands of Sample who was accidently fouled and subsequently would win the game from the line.
