William Woods punches ticket to NAIA National Tournament with a 72-67 victory over Columbia College

March 6th, 2012 in News

There was no getting around the Columbia Lady Cougars inbound line defense by the William Woods Lady Owls. So, ahead of the Lady Cougars 70-67 with under 10 seconds left, William Woods opted to go over.

Lady Owls senior forward Megan Aubuchon lobbed a pass over the Columbia College defense that caught senior guard Sharron Andrews in stride, leading to Andrews drawing a foul and scoring a bucket. Andrews missed the free throw but the layup was the decisive blow as No. 2 seeded William Woods outlasted the top-seeded Lady Cougars 72-67 in the finals of the American Midwest Conference postseason tournament at Southwell Complex on Monday night.
