Dailey dials up a Centennial win from long range
Eagles forward Megan Dailey hits seven 3-pointers during the teams 50-47 win over Barlow
The Centennial girls basketball team found the hot hand Friday night, and Megan Dailey delivered a 50-47 win over Barlow.
Dailey opened the second half by swishing three straight shots from beyond the arc, so it was no surprise when the ball found her in the corner of the court with the game tied and less than a minute to play.
Dailey didnt hesitate.
She launched her critical shot from in front of the Centennial bench, and the Eagle parents were off their seats celebrating before the ball ripped through the net for the winning points. The 3-pointer, her seventh of the night, put Centennial in front 48-45 with 0:48 on the clock.
Barlow answered with a quick two at the other end, but a pair of free throws by Chelsey Miller moved the lead back to three with less than five seconds to play.
The Bruins connected on two long passes to get the ball downcourt for an attempt at a tying 3, but the off-balance shot flew well off target.
