The Mt. Hood Community College women's basketball team scored a 75-72 overtime win over North Region champ Whatcom in the first round of the Northwest Junior College championship tournament Thursday morning in Everett, Wash.
Tatyana Lyles made a pair of free throws to tie the score 59-59 with 0:38 left in regulation. Each side missed a 3-point try down the stretch to send the game to overtime.
After trading the lead early in the extra session, Lyles sank a 3 to put the Saints in charge 70-64 with 2:36 left. A jumper by Rose Gwillim kept Mt. Hood up five points with less than a minute to play. Free throws by Gwillim and Ashley Parry in the closing seconds secured the victory.
Gwillim finished with a game-high 25 points to go along with 12 rebounds, while Lyles finished with 22 points and two steals.
A student at host school Everett Community College tested positive for the COVID-19 virus, leading to the suspension of the tournament just a few hours after Mt. Hood's game went final. The league is in discussions to find a new site, but nothing was confirmed through Sunday night.
The Saints (19-10) have advanced to the quarterfinals to face East runner-up Wenatchee Valley (21-9) if the tournament resumes.
