Call of the Week: San Fran's Taylor Proctor forces overtime

  Proctor put the exclamation point on USF’s run by banking in a 3 with 0.7 seconds to play to tie the game.

Six conference tournament games extended into overtime Thursday, but none had a more improbable finish that San Francisco’s comeback against San Diego in the West Coast Conference quarterfinals.

The No. 6-seed Dons trailed by as many as 12 points in the third quarter, but stormed back in the fourth, outscoring the No. 3-seed Toreros 25-16.

Taylor Proctor put the exclamation point on USF’s run by banking in a 3 with 0.7 seconds to play to tie the game at 73-73.

"It just was incredible the way that our team played to take us to the overtime," USF head coach Jennifer Azzi said. " Taylor had that look in her eye, and so did Rachel (Howard) in the second half that we were not going to let this thing slip away.”

In overtime, USF scored all of its points at the free throw line, making 11 of 16 opportunities, while San Diego capitalized on just 1 of 2 free throw attempts.

Proctor totaled 24 points and teammate Rachel Howard added 26. San Diego’s Malina Hood scored a game-high 33 points.

San Francisco next faces the winner of Friday’s WCC quarterfinal matchup between Saint Mary's and Loyola Marymount.
