HUMBOLDT — The ball rattled in and then out and — just to provide dramatic effect — sat on the rim for a couple juicy milliseconds before falling in for Humboldt junior Aricah McCall, sending her team to overtime where the Lady Cubs eventually prevailed over Central Heights, 41-36
Just seconds before the free throws, the Lady Cubs found themselves down two in a game where the less that could be said about the offense, the better. Humboldt had scored just two points in the third quarter and after leading by as much as nine, needed everything to go right with 6 seconds on the clock.
McCall hustled down the court and as time expired, the official called a foul on her layup in the lane to send her to the line where she sunk both free ones to force overtime.
