With Seattle trailing 98-93 and 14.3 seconds left, Taylor Olson converted a four-point play to pull the Redhawks to within one. Winford pushed the lead back to three for the Eagles, hitting two foul shots with 7.3 seconds left in overtime. Olson’s 3-point attempt at the buzzer fell short for Seattle.
