MOSES LAKE ­— Murphy might as well have been the sixth starter for Big Bend.

It was an “everything that can go wrong will go wrong” game. The Vikings were held without a point for over six minutes in the second quarter, shot 23.1 percent from distance, attempted only six free throws and tied for their lowest point total of the season.

But they still won.

Abby Broadbent broke a 54-54 tie with a clutch 3-pointer in the fourth quarter and Big Bend rallied from 10 down in the second half to beat Columbia Basin 63-56.

“That was huge,” freshman forward Anna Yarbro said. “Abby's a great 3-point shooter and any time anyone gets a shot to bring us from a tie up to a win is huge for us, especially in that play right there when we'd been down the whole game and she brought us over. I think that gave us that boost of energy that we needed to get over.”

Broadbent's make sparked a 7-0 run to ostensibly put the game away.

It was a rare stretch of rhythm for a team that trailed for a majority of the duration.

Columbia Basin began the second quarter on a 10-0 run while Big Bend was held without a point until Sydney Bishop scored with about 3:40 remaining in the first half.

“It was frustrating, but some nights are like that — especially in the East Region,” head coach Preston Wilks said. “You're going to have nights where things aren't going your way and then all of a sudden you can flip a switch and you've got it.

“What's great about this team is we can do that.”

The switch stayed in the “off” position for three quarters as Columbia Basin built its largest lead, 45-35, with 4:32 to go in the third quarter and led by seven points entering the fourth.

Enter Yarbro.

Yarbro scored 10 of her game-high 19 points to begin the fourth quarter and the Vikings never trailed again.

“I thrive under pressure,” she said. “For me, tonight being inside I was able to just get rebounds and get them back up and it just fell.”
