Six Chargers reached double figures as NAIA No. 3 Briar Cliff posted a come-from-behind, last-second 80-79 victory over No. 15 Jamestown on day two of this year's Briar Cliff Holiday Classic. The game featured 14 ties and 10 lead changes. The final lead change came on a lay-up by BC's Megan Salcedo with 0.9 seconds left in the game to put the Chargers up by one. It was the Chargers' first lead since a 64-63 advantage with 8:38 remaining in the game.
Kylie Dilla led the Chargers with a balanced performance which included 16 points, eight assists, six rebounds and three steals. Kelsey Evans chipped in 13 points, while Salcedo and Mattie Murren each tossed in a dozen. Summer Gordon finished with 11 points, while Kristen Twait registered a 10-spot. The Chargers shot 46.7 percent from the floor, including 26.3 percent (5-19) from downtown. The Chargers had 17 turnovers in the game, while they forced 20. They were outrebounded, 38-37. Evans was named the Classic's Most Outstanding Player, while Salcedo made the all-classic team.
"It was a great college basketball game in which two good teams slugged it out until the end," said Briar Cliff head coach Mike Power. "I am sure we will see Jamestown again in March at that national tournament."
Jamestown was led by Bridget Schuneman, who had a 24-point, 10-rebound double-double. Schuneman led three players in double figures as Morgan Mathison had 13 and Carly Jensen had 12. The Jimmies shot 41.1 percent from the field and 50.0 percent (9-18) from three-point land. Schuneman and Mathison were both named to the all-classic team.
With the win, the Chargers improved to 14-2 on the season, while Jamestown slipped to 14-3. The Chargers will be in action again, Monday, as they host the Defenders of Dordt in a 6 p.m. GPAC showdown.
