Bucknell women top Navy 79-71 in OT; 1st NCAA bid since '08

LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Claire DeBoer scored 30 points, Sune Swart blocked five shots - both career highs - and Bucknell beat Navy 79-71 in overtime on Sunday for the Bison's first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 2008.
The Bison won their 28th consecutive home game - the nation's second-longest active streak - and hosted the Patriot League Tournament for the first time in program history.
DeBoer hit five 3-pointers, 7 of 8 free throws and grabbed 10 rebounds, and Swart added 15 points and six rebounds. Kate Walker scored four of her 12 points in overtime, including a layup for a six-point lead with 1:57 left, for Bucknell (27-5).
Sarita Condie made four 3-pointers and scored 16 points, and Taylor Dunham added three 3s and 14 points for Navy (23-9).
At the end of regulation, Dunham broke a double team in the corner by driving baseline and she passed it out to a wide-open Ashanti Kennedy for a game-tying 3-pointer with 7.5 left.
