Clarksville, Ark.- Senior guard Ashley Hipps hit the game-winning jump shot with 2.9 seconds left in overtime to lead Ozarks to a 83-82 win over Louisiana College Saturday.
The game, which was designated as Senior Day, went into overtime after Louisiana College (8-14, 6-9 ASC) scored the final four points of the fourth quarter to end regulation in a 72-72 tie. Ozarks (10-11, 3-10 ASC) held a 79-78 lead with one minute left in overtime, but needed a Macie Kultgen bucket with 30 seconds left to gain the lead back. Louisiana College answered seconds later to move ahead by one point. Ozarks called a timeout with 13 ticks left to draw up a play, and Hipps responded by driving to her left for an inside shot with 2.9 seconds remaining. The Wildcats last second shot proved unsuccessful.
