OCALA--College of Central Florida women's basketball player Amanda Melosky drained a jumper with two seconds remaining to break the tie and lift CF over St. Petersburg College 73-71 on Saturday afternoon.
The Lady Patriots traveled to St. Pete for a crucial conference match up against the Titans. A win would solidify at least third place in the conference and a chance for a third-straight trip to the state tournament.
CF entered the fourth quarter up 51-49. After a back-and-forth affair, the Patriots and Titans were all tied up at 71-71, but CF had the ball with two seconds remaining.
Kiarah Mallory inbounded the ball to Melosky who drained the jumper and gave CF the win.
