Juhl's basket with 12 seconds left helps Central beat Hardin, 52-51

It was turning out to be a fairly forgettable game for Justyn Juhl. Foul trouble. Shooting troubles. A scoreless first half.

Juhl made it memorable, though, by hitting the game-deciding basket with 12.2 seconds left in Billings Central’s 52-51 Eastern A girls basketball victory over Hardin on Thursday night at the Nelles Activities Center.

The last basket was part of a 16-4 Central run in the game’s final 6 ½ minutes. And while Juhl spent much of the first half on the bench after picking up two fouls within the game’s first two minutes, the thought of being a deciding factor at the end of the game never entered her mind at any point.

“It was rough,” said Juhl, who scored all nine of her points in the second half and finished 3 of 13 from the floor. “For me, I just wanted to get back on the floor. Really, on the sideline, I put all my faith in my teammates.”

Allie Lucas scored a team-high 17 points and Melissa Koerber had 12 points and a team-high seven rebounds. Credit for Central’s rally also goes to sophomore guard Julianna Arellano, who, seeing more playing time because of a concussion to starting point Mariah Wittman, hit two 3-pointers in the fourth quarter.

By the time Arellano hit her second 3-pointer, the Rams were back in the game at 49-46 with 4:10 left.

“I think that’s what probably started our run,” said Lucas, who was 7 of 12 from the floor. “Julianna comes in and hits a couple big shots, which was really good for her. And it was good for us.”

Behind a game-high 23 points from Alyssa Big Man, 15 more from Darrlynn Left Hand, and 9-for-9 free-throw shooting, Hardin led throughout much of the game.

But two free throws by Lucas with 1:02 left in the game gave Central a 50-49 lead, its first since the midpoint of the second quarter. Big Man answered with a nice baseline drive with 48 seconds left, and after two Central timeouts on a long possession, Juhl hit her short jumper for the last lead change.

Big Man missed a final chance and the buzzer sounded before either team could gain possession of the rebound. Hardin (2-7 Eastern A, 6-10 overall) has lost its last four games by a total of 11 points.

“It’s disheartening,” said Hardin coach Cindy Farmer, whose team aided Central’s cause with an own basket early in the third quarter. “But I tell you, you can’t break these guys. They’ll come back.”

Central broke a two-game losing streak by making 7 of 13 shots in the fourth quarter. The fifth-ranked Rams (6-1, 11-3) turned the ball over just three times in the second half.

“It was quite the mountain we had to climb there,” Central coach Levi Osborne said. “I think we played a little desperate there in the last four minutes. Hardin outplayed us for 28 minutes of that game, and that’s not a normal thing for us. The last four minutes, though, these girls are winners and they know how to win. They’ll lay everything on the line for each other.”
