Cowgirls Hold Off FGC In Overtime To Win NCAA Tournament Opener

Posted: Updated:

Tiffany Bias' driving layup with 41 seconds remaining in overtime lifted No. 5 seed Oklahoma State to a 61-60 victory over No. 12 seed Florida Gulf Coast on Saturday in the opening round of the Notre Dame Regional.

The Cowgirls (24-8) will play either No. 4 seed Purdue or 13th-seeded Akron in the second round on Monday night.

The teams traded the lead in OT before Bias' layup. Florida Gulf Coast (26-8) missed a shot with that would have given the Eagles the lead. Oklahoma State was fouled with 3 seconds left, but Liz Donohoe missed the free throw. Florida Gulf Coast had a chance, but Brittney Martin stole the inbounds pass with a second left. She too was fouled and missed her free throw giving the Eagles one final chance, but they couldn't get a shot off.
