Addison McDonald made a 3-pointer with 3 seconds remaining and the Lampasas Lady Badgers stunned fifth-ranked Glen Rose 46-45 in overtime on Tuesday in Lampasas.

Now the Lady Badgers wait and see if their season goes into overtime.

Friday was supposed to be the season finale for Lampasas, but there may be more basketball on tap for the Lady Badgers.

If Brownwood doesn't win on the road Friday at No. 6 Stephenville, Brownwood and Lampasas, which has a bye Friday, will finish tied for the final playoff spot in District 6-4A and will have to play a postseason tiebreaker.

Glen Rose won the first meeting with Lampasas 52-22 on Jan. 15. The Lady Tigers nearly won in regulation, but Lampasas' Taylor Allen, like McDonald a senior, tipped the ball in at the buzzer to send the game to overtime.

Glen Rose (22-3) had only lost to Stephenville and No. 13 Decatur before Tuesday.

The Lady Badgers won two of their final three 6-4A games after a 0-5 start.
