It wasn’t an easy victory for the Embry-Riddle Eagles women’s basketball team Friday night. They had to battle back from an early ten-point deficit trying to push their record to 8-1. Luckily, there was just enough time to pull off the comeback.


The Eagles went into the half down 10 points, but a big third quarter in which they outscored Flagler 22-13 got them back in the hunt. The two teams remained tied with just five seconds on the clock, and that’s when Tara Fields found Ashley McWilliams deep behind the 3-point line.

The deep 3-pointer was McWilliams first 3 of the game and just her sixth of the season. It didn’t just evoke emotion from the Eagles faithful, but sent their announcer into a frenzy as well.

McWilliams finished with 11 points on the night, none bigger than those last three. The win moves Embry-Riddle to 8-1 overall, tied atop the Sunshine State Conference standings with Eckerd, Tampa and Rollins. The Eagles look to keep it rolling at the Daytona Beach Shootout next.
