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.
