Mariah Schaeffer scored nine of her game-high 17 points in the opening quarter, and Dani Conway had her second triple-double this season – both against Deposit – finishing with 13 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists, and six steals. “We got out and ran a little bit in the first quarter, and we had some easy looks at the basket,” said B-G coach Bob Conway.

Owego 39, Norwich 37 (OT)

NORWICH – Extra minutes have proven extra unkind to the Tornado this season.

Norwich’s second-half comeback went for naught as the Indians defeated Norwich in overtime, the third OT defeat for the Purple Tornado this season.

Alicia Marhefka scored off an inbounds play with eight seconds left in regulation to force overtime. In the bonus four-minute period, Owego missed the front end of three one-and-one foul shots, but cashed in on Marhefka’s inside prowess as she tallied a layup with 1:19 to play.

Owego went on a 11-2 run early in the third period getting back-to-back three-pointers from Alana Cerrantani to make it 28-18 with 1:55 left in the third.

Norwich battled back over the final two minutes hitting 4-for-4 from the foul line, while Adrienne Sharpe bucketed a layup.

Six straight points from Norwich’s Chelsea Leibundgut early in the fourth quarter put Norwich in front 32-31. After an exchange of the lead, Emily Tackabury hit 3-for-6 from the foul line in the last two minutes putting NHS in front 37-35.
