Fulton sophomore forward NaShayla Brandt had the shot she wanted with the Lady Hornets down two and time expiring.
The rim had other plans, though.
"It just wasn't meant to be," Lady Hornet head coach TJ Quick said. "She barely missed it."
Brandt scored a game-high 19 points and pulled down nine rebounds, but Fulton came up a basket short in a 47-45 loss to the Kirksville Lady Tigers in Thursday night's North Central Missouri Conference opener at Roger D. Davis Gymnasium.
