Erick has a knack for the big shot two days into the Class B state tournament.

On Thursday, Maranda Janz hit a big 3-pointer and Shyli May closed out the victory against Timberlake with a crucial free throw.

Friday morning, it was nearly the same formula as Janz hit three big 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and May made the go-ahead trey in overtime to lift the No. 8-ranked Bearcats over No. 11 Shattuck 51-44 at State Fair Arena.

“We're just one of those teams that … it just clicks,” May said about the big shots.

Erick now awaits the winner of No. 1 Hammon and No. 2 Lomega for Saturday's title game at noon in State Fair Arena.

But it nearly blew the game at the end of the fourth.

Shattuck (24-5) erased a five-point deficit in the final 28 seconds, and it was fueled by a turnover with 10 seconds remaining that allowed Takeyah Thomas to tie the game with two free throws to ultimately force overtime.

Erick (23-8), though, regrouped in overtime and took control with May's 3-pointer with 1:37 remaining.
