ASHLAND — Maggie Nussbaum drove the lane in the final seconds of overtime Thursday and ended up on the floor.

Fortunately for her, the ball ended up through the net.

Nussbaum hit a layup with 0.9 seconds showing on the clock, despite being guarded by two Ashland defenders who knocked her off-balance during her shot. The field goal sent the Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets to their sixth straight victory, 61-60.
