Short hits overtime game-winner to lead women's hoops over KSU

NASHVILLE – Carleigh Short may not have called glass, but she for sure called game.

The Lipscomb women’s basketball team closed out the season on a strong note by beating Kennesaw State 72-69 in an overtime thriller on Tuesday night in Allen Arena. Junior Carleigh Short banked in the game-winning shot as time expired in the extra frame.

The Lady Bisons (4-25, 2-4) and the Owls (8-21, 4-12) were tied at 60 at the end of regulation, but Lipscomb outscored KSU 12-9 in the extra period.

Lipscomb led by as much as 16 in the second half, but the Owls came storming back with a 12-2 run to send the game to overtime.

Junior Lauren Rau’s basket with 20 seconds left in overtime tied the game up at 69, setting the stage for Short’s game-winner.

Short finished the game with 17 points, four rebounds, two assists, and two steals. She also shot 5-13 from three-point range.

Sophomore Taylor Clark points, rebounds, assists, and steals, nearly notching a triple-double with 18 points, nine rebounds, a career-high eight assists, and three steals.

Redshirt-sophomore Emily Kmec added 15 points, seven rebounds, one steal and a team-high two blocks.
