Crossland 55, No. 14 Long Reach 53, OT: The score was tied at 25 at the half, but the Lightning (7-1) took the lead entering the fourth quarter after storming out to a 20-point lead and holding the Cavaliers (5-4) to just one basket in the third. But Crossland countered with its own 20-4 run in the final eight minutes of regulation to force overtime and won the title game in the Donnis Thompson Division of the Title IX tournament at the D.C. Armory.
"We played hard," said Long Reach coach Kelli Cofield. "But I think overall it was a great tournament for us. It was a great exposure event against teams we don't normally see."
Emily Joyce led Long Reach with a season-high 15 points, while junior guard Kiana Williams had 13. Lyric Swann and Devon Williams each added nine points, while Ariana Briggs-Hall added seven.
