GIRLS BASKETBALL:McQuillen jumper gives Cresskill a win over Emerson
CRESSKILL – Cougars senior Erin McQuillen hit a short baseline jumper with six seconds to go to propel Cresskill past Emerson, 48-46, on Tuesday afternoon. “Coach [Mike McCourt] said step out and get her the ball,” said Cougars junior Julia Maltby. “I stepped out and I saw her coming and I thought, ‘I really hope that they don’t jump this right now.’ Once I got her the ball I have so much confidence in her that I knew she would be able to get us a win.” Emerson had tied the score 46-all a minute earlier after senior Devin Riker slipped between two Cresskill defenders to grab a rebound off a missed shot. The Cavos called timeout 20 seconds later and scored the tying basket on a put-back by junior Jenna Cooper, who finished with 11 points. Cresskill took possession of the ball and passed it back and forth around the perimeter for nearly a minute before calling timeout to set up a play with 14.2 seconds left. MORE...
