MSSU Women's basketball loses heartbreaker in OT to Nebraska-Kearney

Updated:

JOPLIN - With Dominique Mosley hitting a layup as time expired in regulation to force overtime, the Missouri Southern women's basketball team fell 67-60 in overtime to Nebraska-Kearney this afternoon at the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center.

With Mosley's layup forcing overtime, the Lions were unable to capitalize in the extra session only hitting 1-of-11 from the field in the extra five minutes to fall to the MIAA newcomer.

The Lions (10-5, 4-3 MIAA) were led on the afternoon by guard Nicole Hartzog, who finished with 11 points, while Shatara Stone and Mosley each finished with nine points. The Lopers (5-10, 2-6) were led by Ivy Jones who finished with 20 points, while Nicole Arp finished with 15 points.  

With the Lopers jumping out to a 21-8 lead in the first 12 minutes of the first half, the Lions woke up from their slow start offensively to finish the half on a 22-7 run over the final eight minutes of the half to take a two point lead into the halftime break (30-28). Hartzog helped spark the offense during that run scoring nine of her 11 points during that eight minute stretch.

The Lions got off to a slow start in the second half out as the Lopers came out of the locker room on a 15-6 run to take a seven point lead (43-36), before three consecutive Stone layups and a free throw from Mosley tied the game at 44 with 8:10 to play. The two squads would trade the next 12 points to lock the game at 50, before the Lopers hit three free throws and a layup to take a five point lead with 1:57 to play. The Lions would respond with Stone hitting a pair of free throws before Erin Rice nailed a jumper from inside the paint to close it within one. A Loper's free throw gave UNK a two-point lead before Mosley's last second shot forced overtime.

With the score tied at 60, the Lopers would reel off the last seven points of the game as the Lions were unable to hit any of their final six shots in the extra session.

The Lions shot a season-low 28.1% from the field on the afternoon hitting only 18-of-64 field goals. The Lions also had a tough going from the beyond the arc only hitting 2-of-17 (.118) behind the three point line. Despite grabbing 43 rebounds and forcing a season-high 28 turnovers, the Lions allowed the Lopers to grab 48 rebounds of their own and score 30 points in the paint.

The Lions return to action Wednesday night when they travel to Emporia State to battle the Hornets at 5:30 p.m. in White Auditorium.
