State College’s Kyla Irwin scored at the buzzer on Friday night to help the Lady Little Lions into overtime, but Harrisburg won the extra frame 10-3 and the game, 59-52, to hand State College its second loss of the season.
Irwin scored a game-high 26 points, as State College (7-2) held a 23-20 lead at the break before falling behind 37-36 to the Cougars after three.
“We picked up some momentum heading into overtime, but like in the holiday tournament, we have to learn how to finish. I think that will be our focus in January,” State College coach Bethany Irwin said.
Bridget King added 12 points for State College.
