Close games don’t go BVU’s way in tourney
Women edged, 65-64
Sixth-seeded Buena Vista was seconds away from a trip to the Iowa Conference tournament championship game, but Coe’s Mackenzie Reed hit an off-balance jumper with 5 seconds left to edge the Beavers 65-64 last Thursday in Cedar Rapids.
The game was back-and-forth most of the way, including the final minutes of the second half. BVU built a 64-61 lead before a basket by the Kohawks made it a one-point game with 1:54 to go. From there, neither team was able to find the basket until the final points.
