The St. Louis Community College Women's Basketball team got a huge boost of confidence on Wednesday night on the Forest Park campus with a 63-62 victory over MCCAC leader Three Rivers Community College. Three Rivers jumped out to a 21-15 lead after the first quarter and took a 35-29 lead into the locker room at the half, but the third quarter belonged to the Lady Archers, who outscored Three Rivers 20-11 in the quarter. The fourth quarter saw the lead exchange hands possession after possession until under the final minute. \

St. Louis held the Raiders to a missed shot on the ensuing possession and grabbed the rebound, but Three Rivers forced a turnover with 5.2 seconds left to regain the ball. The Archers fouled Three Rivers on the inbound, to force the Raiders to inbound again, as they had not yet reached five team fouls and allowing Three Rivers free throws. With 2.1 seconds remaining on the clock, Erika Harvey deflected the inbound pass and quickly jumped on the loose ball as the clock ran out.
