Towson State 65, Campbell 64

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Senior Danielle Barry hit the front end of a one-and-one with one second left as fifth-seeded Towson State (17-10) overcame an eight-point deficit in the final 3:31 to beat fourth-seeded Campbell (16-11).

The Tigers will face the winner of the game between top-seeded UNC-Greensboro and UNC-Asheville in the semifinals tonight.

Barry, who scored 21 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, made a steal at the Tigers' end of the court with 10 seconds left and was fouled on her drive to the basket.

She missed the second free throw, but got her own rebound, and the Tigers held on. Towson senior guard Megan Gebbia had scored eight straight points to tie the game at 64.
