Thrilling heartbreaker ends Stanford-Xavier game

New, 5 comments

The Stanford-Xavier women's basketball Elite 8 game yesterday was a thriller and a heart-breaker at the same time. Xaiver player Dee Dee Jernigan had two wide (and I mean WIDE) open layups in the final seconds to take a 2-point lead but failed to connect. Then, a la UCLA's Tyus Edney in 1995, Stanford's Jeanette Pohlen (right) took the ball coast-to-coast in 4.4 seconds and put up the game-winning layup with about .001 seconds left on the clock.

Check out ESPN's recap, and Tyus Edney's famous play, after the jump.
