Women's Basketball - Ellington wins it for Lady Mustangs
1/7/2019 8:41 AM

Abby Ellington’s three-pointer with 3.8 seconds left on Saturday morning gave McCracken County a 65-62 win over Hopkinsville.

“I just feel like we’ve gotten better as a team since the last time we played them,” said Ellington, who with Marlee Morehead scored 17 to pace the Lady Mustangs, who took a 51-46 lead into the final quarter.

Normally a player who drives to the basket and scores, it’s not too often Ellington takes a shot from beyond the arc. On Saturday, hers was only the second made three-pointer of the 15 the Lady Mustangs attempted.

Still, Ellington was confident when it counted.

“Nobody wanted to go to overtime,” she said. “We just wanted to win and go home.”
