  • Seminole State’s Belles overcame a 27-16 halftime deficit and knotted the score at 59 by the end of regulation, but a buzzer beater lifted Redlands to a 71-70 overtime win Thursday in the first round of the NJCAA Region II Tournament at Oklahoma Baptist’s Noble Complex.
     
    The loss ends the Belles’ season, and Redlands will move on to an 8 p.m. semifinals game against NOC-Enid Friday.
     
    Seminole State got 20 points and eight rebounds from Oulaymatou Coulibaly on 7-for-20 shooting from the field. She was 6-for-8 on free throws as the Belles went 21-for-29 (72.4 percent).
     
    The Belles as a team went 22-for-68 from the floor for 32.4 percent, and they were 5-for-23 from long range. Jennifer Rosado led on 3-point shots at 3-for-8. Rosado finished with 15 points and eight boards, and teammate Cherell Price notched 13 points.
     
    Maraea Kelemete also hauled in eight rebounds for SSC.
     
    The Lady Cougars were led by Kayla Pahcoddy’s game-high 22 points, and Lissette Plasencia came away with 17. Both led Redlands in rebounds with eight apiece.
     
    Redlands out-rebounded the Belles 50-41.
     
    Redlands hit at a 44.3-percent clip from the field (27-for-61), including a 3-for-14 effort from 3-point range. Pahcoddy connected on two of those long shots.
     
    The Lady Cougars were 14-for-23 (60.9 percent) on charity tosses.
     
    In other Region II tourney contests Thursday, NOC-Enid dispatched NOC-Tonkawa, 66-58, and Murray State defeated Carl Albert State 63-56. Northeastern A&M topped Arkansas Baptist, 75-62.
     
    Prior to NOC-Enid and Redlands squaring off in Friday’s semifinals, Murray and NEO will face off at 6 p.m.
