IC West Girls escape Southeast Polk

Posted: Updated:
Dani Craig's clutch shooting was just what Iowa City West needed in a battle of former state champions.

Craig hit three big 3-pointers, including the game-winner with 14 seconds remaining, to help the fifth-ranked Women of Troy beat No. 6 Southeast Polk 43-40 in a first-round Class 5A game.

West (22-2) struggled early, fell behind by 14 points and found itself down 25-13 with under a minute to play in the first half. A 12-0 run spanning halftime got the Women of Troy back in it and the two teams went back and forth the rest of the way.
