3-pointer with 3.7 seconds to play ends Lady Chargers season in first round of NCAA Tournament

March Madness is humbling — just ask the Lady Chargers.

Three crucial missed free throws and a dramatic 3-pointer by Indianapolis guard Jessica Canary with 3.7 seconds remaining gave the 7-seed Greyounds a thrilling 73-72 win over the 2-seed Chargers, the second straight first-round exit from the NCAA Tournament for the Chargers.

The Chargers led 62-52 more than halfway through the second half, but Greyhounds’ sophomore forward Samantha Meissel went toe-for-toe with Charger superstar Katie Cezat and her senior teammate hit the dagger to end the Chargers’ season at 27-4.

Cezat finished her career with another vintage performance, 36 points and 16 rebounds, after scoring just nine points in the first half.

Meissel scored 32 points and hit 4-of-5 from 3-point range.

The Chargers crutch proved to be free throws, as they went just 19-of-30 from the charity stripe.

Brooke Knight scored 10 points for Hillsdale in her final game.

For a full game recap pick up a copy of Saturday’s Hillsdale Daily News.

I am what you think I am — a journalist. Actually when I was hired at my current job, which by the way is Sports Editor of the Hillsdale Daily News in Hillsdale, Mich., I applied for a position titled "Wordsmith", so at my best I'll call myself a writer attempting to be a wordsmith extraordinaire.
