That wasn’t enough as North, which finished 19 for 21 at the charity stripe, hit three free throws to put itself in position for Scott’s big shot.
“This is an unbelievable group,” coach Jeff Blough said. “They are so tough. It came down to who made the last shot, and tonight it was Alexa with that three for us.”
The victory was North’s fourth of the season over Edmond Memorial, and it came in a physical, drawn-out contest in which both teams took hard hits and struggled with foul trouble. Edmond Memorial’s Andee Decker was one of those who spent the game in foul trouble, and finished with just five points. Roy led the Bulldogs with 13 points, 14 rebounds, four blocks and three assists.
Next up for North is a state quarterfinal game on Thursday against a yet-to-be-determined opponent.
“We’ve been working toward this all season,” Scott said. “Just the experience of being in state my freshman year is so exciting.”
