Center Grove’s girls basketball team fell 95 seconds short of a Metropolitan Conference championship Friday.
Lawrence North’s Destiny Washington grabbed the Wildcats’ third offensive rebound on the possession and scored a putback basket with 1:35 remaining, tying the game 50-all and erasing a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit.
Class 4A No. 6 Lawrence North then took over in overtime, scoring 13 points in four minutes to edge the visiting Trojans 63-57 and clinch the MIC tile.
The loss dropped Center Grove to 14-5 overall and 5-1 in league play.
