The win over Wall put them in the semi-finals facing a very competitive DeSmet team. This was the game of the tournament  for the Lady Longhorns. The girls came from behind at the end of the first three quarters to tie it up at the end of regulation play and ended up going into two 4 minute overtimes but came up two points short at the end of play. Kaycee Groves was hot on shooting and scored 31 points and pulled down 10 big rebounds. TyAnn Mortenson added 10 to the score. This game got a little physical and some of our girls ended up with some injuries.
