Game 9 vs. Utah State

Cold shooting in the second half did nothing to deter the Cougar team as it came back to claim a double-overtime 61-60 win against Utah State.

With 1.7 seconds remaining in regulation, Coriann Wood hit a three-point shot to tie the score 43-43 and send the game into overtime.
The Cougars jumped out to an early six-point lead at 12-6 thanks to back-to-back makes from Cassie King on BYU’s first possessions of the game.

Despite the Cougars’ tough defensive play, which forced several USU shot clock violations, the Aggies battled back to tie the score 12-12 with 11:40 remaining in the first half. A key defensive rebound by King resulted in a layup by Keilani Moeaki, helping secure a 24-22 lead heading into the locker room.

Held scoreless to begin the first nine minutes of the second half, the Cougars found themselves leading 29-26 with 10:05 remaining. A fast-break layup and three-point play by Mindy Nielson gave BYU its first points of the half.

The Aggies jumped out to a six-point lead with 5:23 remaining in regulation, but four trips to the free throw line put the Cougars behind by three points with time for one last possession. Wood’s three-pointer with 1.7 seconds on the clock tied the score 43-43, sending the game into overtime. Wood’s make from behind-the-arc marked BYU’s first in the game.

In the first overtime, Nielson scored two before the Aggies followed with a basket of their own. Free throws by both teams kept the score close tying it at 51-51 on King’s 2-for-2 trips to the line.

The second overtime continued much like the first, with neither team building more than a one-possession lead. Foreman’s steal and layup put the Cougars up 59-57, while Wood’s two free throws with 7.8 seconds remaining on the clock sealed the win for BYU.
