Press Release Pittsburg State University: 

Lizzy Jeronimus scored 11 points in overtime to help the Pittsburg State University women's basketball team pull away for an 83-73 victory over the University of Nebraska-Kearney Wednesday (Jan. 22).

Pitt State (12-6, 5-3 MIAA) trailed by three points, 66-63, with 2:08 to play in regulation, before rallying to knot the score against UNK (6-10, 3-7 MIAA).

Brigit Hesser pulled the Gorillas within a point, at 66-65, with 1:43 to play. After UNK's Laramey Lewis missed on a 3-pointer, Jeronimus was fouled on the defensive rebound with 1:18 to go. She made the second of two free throws to tie the game up, at 66-66.

Jeronimus put Pitt State ahead 14 seconds into the extra session and then converted a three-point play for a 71-66 lead at the 4:19 mark of the extra session.

Sarah Hix buried a 3-pointer for the Lopers to make it a 71-69 game, but the Gorillas stretched their cusion to 76-70 with 1:48 remaining in OT on baskets by Cathy Brugman and Jeronimus and a free throw by Alex Muff.

Hix made another trey to make it a 76-73 game, but Alexa Bordewick countered with a 3-pointer for the Gorillas to push the margin back to 79-73 with 24 seconds remaining. Jeronimus added a pair of free throws and a breakaway layup in the game's waning seconds.

Jeronimus led all scorers with 31 points. She made 10 of 23 shots from the field and 11 of 13 free throws, while adding seven rebounds in the contest. Brugman finished the game with 17 points and eight rebounds, while Hesser chipped in with 10 points. Muff led the Gorillas with nine rebounds.
