Techsters nipped, 60-59
It was Dowdell’s three-point field goal at 2:13 that lifted Tech to within 55-50 and then her 10-foot jumper with 45 seconds remaining that narrowed WKU’s advantage to two points (55-58).
“It was a heckuva effort on Shanavia’s part,” Long said. “When she hit the floor, our heart just sank because we’ve been snakebit with injuries. But she came back in and just played unbelievable and really just willed herself to carry our team and have a tremendous performance.”
