Arlington Bowie trailed much of the game, but managed to force two overtimes and outlasted Fort Worth Trimble Tech 78-70 in the opening round of the Mansfield Spring Creek Barbecue Invitational girls tournament at Timberview High School on Thursday.

Bowie (13-1), ranked No. 6 in Class 5A in the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches poll, took a 66-63 lead with 20 seconds left in regulation on a free throw by Jazmine Holman, but Trimble Tech (12-3) tied it with 13 seconds left on a three-point play by Jhyrah Cobb.

Tech, No. 10 in Class 4A by the TABC, took a 70-69 lead in the second overtime on a basket by Cobb, but the Bulldogs were held scoreless for the final two minutes, allowing the Volunteers to pull away.

Bowie had four players in double figures, led by Emerald Mayfield who poured in 26 points including eight in the overtime periods. Mayfield was 10 for 14 from the free-throw line.

Nicole Iloanya (18 points), Bria Degrate (12) and Holman (10) led Bowie in a game that set a tournament record for most points scored in a game by both teams. The 148 points eclipsed the 143 by Mansfield (75) and Springdale, Ark., Har-Ber (68) in 2006.

Crystal Allen led Trimble Tech with 19 points, 16 after the half, including 15 of 16 from the free-throw line. Karrington Brown added 16 for the Bulldogs.

“It’s very competitive tournament and we look forward to it every year,” said Bowie coach Kelly Carruthers, “but the way the days lined up this year with Christmas being on Wednesday and this tournament always starting on Thursday we just didn’t get a day in to practice.

“So I knew it was going to be ugly. I didn’t know it was going to be that ugly, but we finally woke up in overtime.”
