Ospreys down Camels in Double OT

It took two overtimes but the UNF women’s basketball team outlasted the Campbell Camels, 65-63, inside the UNF Arena, Jan. 29, in the second meeting between the two teams this season.

UNF trailed by three with five second left in regulation. However a missed free throw by Camel senior forward Lauren Yesh gave the Ospreys (8-12, 6-5 Atlantic Sun) life. UNF pulled down the rebound and went the length of the court to find sophomore forward Jadhken Kerr, who buried a 3-pointer from the top of the arch as the clock ran out to tie the game.

The Ospreys and Camels (8-12, 7-4 Atlantic Sun) are no stranger to overtime games. The last time the two teams faced off, Jan. 5, also went into double overtime. The Ospreys fell to Campbell 80-73 on the road.

The Ospreys led for most regulation, jumping out to a 10-4 lead. A Kerr 3-pointer gave helped the Ospreys build a even larger lead as they took a 29-20 lead with 1:09 left in the first half. UNF led 31-22 at intermission.

UNF came out fast in the second half building their lead to as much a 15 when junior guard Brittany Kirkland hit a 3-pointer with 12:41 left in regulation.

However, from there on out the Ospreys struggled offensively. They would not score another field goal until there was 1:10 remaining on the clock. Meanwhile, the Camels fought back and took their first lead since the opening minutes when sophomore guard made a lay up to bring the score to 48-46 with 2:19 left.

Kerr’s three to tie the game was just their third field goal in the last 13 minutes of regulation.

The Ospreys were led by Kirkland who scored 15 points. Sophomore center Larkira Jones added a double-double with 13 points and 18 rebound and Kerr added 13.

Sophomore guard Tonisha Baker led the way for the Camels with 19 points.

UNF has four days off before hosting Lipscomb, Jan. 3, inside the UNF Arena at 5:30.
