February 23, 2008
Shreveport, La. - Spring Hill grabbed an offensive rebound and scored with .7 seconds remaining on the clock in overtime to defeat the Lady Pilots 81-80 on Senior Day at The Dock.
Teokea Wilkerson drained two free throws with seven seconds left in the overtime period to give the Lady Pilots an 80-79 lead, but Keisha Forbes saved the day for the Lady Badgers with an offensive put back with less than a second remaining.
