Rockets fall in overtime at Liberty

Keller Hatfield

Westwood erased a 7-point fourth-quarter deficit and got a buzzer-beating 3-pointer from Keller Hatfield to force overtime, but fell just short at Liberty Wednesday night, losing 42-40.

Hatfield hit a trio of 3-pointers in the fourth quarter to help force overtime.

Zeke Jones also hit big shots late – a 3 pointer in the fourth and another in overtime. But that was the only overtime points Westwood was able to muster.
