Barta's buzzer-beats leads Montana girls over Wyoming

Barta's clutch 3 lifts Montana girls over Wyoming

Gonzaga commit leads all scorers in all-star game

SHERIDAN, Wyo. – Another big moment, another clutch Jill Barta opportunity.

The recent Fairfield graduate dropped a dagger of a 3-pointer with four seconds left to give the Treasure State girls the 57-55 victory in the first half of the Montana-Wyoming All-Star Basketball Series on Friday in Sheridan.

Barta, 6-foot-4 a Gonzaga commit, helped Fairfield to its 104st consecutive victory just this March when she scored 41 points in the State B title game against Malta, a total that included a three-point play to force an overtime and another off-balance 3-pointer to send the game to a second OT.

Trailing 55-51 with under three minutes to play Friday, Missoula Sentinel’s Olivia Roberts hit a 3-pointer that brought the Montana girls within a point. After each team traded big swing and misses, the Montanans took the ball out of a timeout with 31 seconds to play that set up Barta’s heroics.

Wyoming, which shot just 4 of 10 from the free throw line, missed the first end of 1-and-1 trips to the line twice in the final minute that left the door open for Barta. She led all scorers with 19 points, hitting on 10 of her 12 free-throw attempts.

Kalispell Glacier’s Cassi Hashley, who’ll play at Carroll College next year, scored 10 points and Roberts, the future Wyoming Cowgirl, netted nine. Vanessa Stavish of Frenchtown added six points, a total that included a three for the Montana State Billings signee.

Wyoming was led by Kaylee Johnson, a Stanford commit, Julia Seamans and Kaycee O’Connor who each scored nine points.

The boys' game followed this contest and the series concludes Saturday in Billings at Rocky Mountain College.

Stay tuned for a full recap of the boys' matchup.
