Northwest beats Carroll at the buzzer

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) -- A prayer was answered at Bishop Carroll Catholic High School Wednesday night, and it was in favor of the visiting Northwest Grizzlies.

Isis Sanders chucked up a desperation deep three-pointer at the regulation buzzer with the unlikely chance of converting, and instead walked away with the 54-53 win over the Golden Eagles.

Bishop Carroll led by 11 with six and a half minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.

That lead was erased in moments by Northwest freshman guard Isis Sanders, who converted three-consecutive triples.

The Grizzlies trailed by two points with less than 20 seconds in the game, when Sanders came up with a big rebound and outlet pass to Daysha Ogunbiyi. The sophomore knocked down the shot to tie the game with 10 seconds remaining.

On the ensuing inbound play, Kendall Forbes draws the foul and hits both of her free throws to lift Bishop Carroll to a two-point lead with six seconds remaining.

Northwest trailed 53-51, when Sanders threw up the final attempt--and drained it for three.

Sanders finished with 25 points, 18 of which came from three-point depth.
