Azusa, CA (KTUU) Welcome to March Madness. Where no game is handed to you and most of them will come down to the wire.
That was certainly the case with UAA and Northwest Nazarene.
The Seawolves had a 7 point lead going into the 4th quarter, but the Nighthawks would battle back til the game was tied. And then back and forth these two teams went.
Until suddenly, there's 17 seconds left. The game is tied at 63. UAA has the ball. Junior guard Yazmeen Goo drives, gets fouled and MISSED both free throws. But Sala Langi had her teammate's back, gets the offensive rebound, and Goo redeemed herself by making the game winning layup with less than 5 seconds left.
Northwest Nazarene tried for a buzzer beater 3 pointer, but it falls short, UAA moves on to the next round, and will face the winner of Azusa-Pacific and Humboldt State.
