Games can turn in just a few seconds. We might have seen just such a swing in the OSU-A&M game. The Cowgirls had crawled back to within 43-41, and OSU’s Taylor Hardeman blocked an inside shot by Patrice Reado.
With a chance to tie, OSU’s Andrea Riley tossed up a pullup jumper. It was a good shot. It just rolled off. A&M came down and cold-blooded point guard A’Quonesia Franklin hit a 3-point shot. Suddenly, the Cowgirls trailed by five instead of being tied.
It’s hard to play from behind all night long, and when you get a chance to get even, teams need to take advantage. Those opportunities don’t always come back.
