Lindsay Kimmel nailed six three-point shots as the Temple women's team rallied for a 75-71 overtime win over Tulane yesterday in New Orleans.
A sophomore from Binghamton, N.Y., Kimmel finished with a career-high 18 points.
Her biggest shot came with the score tied at 66 with 2 minutes, 30 seconds to play in overtime. As her three-pointer went down, teammate Shenita Landry was fouled while setting a screen for Kimmel. Her two free throws opened a five-point lead for Temple.
Landry had 16 points and 13 rebounds for her fifth double-double of the season for the Owls (7-4). Shanea Cotton led Temple with 21 points, while LaKeisha Eaddy had her first career double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, and also had seven assists and six steals.
