It took a gritty effort for the Franklin College women’s basketball team to survive a 78-75 double-overtime win against visiting Anderson University on Saturday.
The Grizzlies remain one game back of Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference league-leader Transylvania with two games remaining.
Against the Ravens, Franklin saw its 14-point lead vanish when Jenna Wittenberg hit a layup with 24 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 54-apiece.
Unable to score at the end of regulation, the two teams went to overtime.
With momentum shifted, Wittenberg got another layup and a pair of free throws that gave the Ravens a 64-60 lead.
Franklin senior point guard Annie Tarkington knocked down a 3-pointer with 22 seconds left.
