At halftime, Prospect sophomore Taylor Will had a question for her coach, Ashley Graham. “She asked me if there was anything she could to do make her free throws (after going 1-of-6 in the first half),” Graham said. “And like any coach would say, I just told her it’s very mental, you’ve got to be locked in.” Sure enough, with 0.9 seconds left in Tuesday’s Mid-Suburban League girls basketball crossover at Barrington, Will locked up the 1-point win for the Knights. With — you guessed it — a free throw. After missing the first of two, Will sank the second to give the Knights a dramatic 40-39 come-from-behind victory. The 5-foot-10 sophomore scored 10 of her team’s 12 points in the final quarter and finished with a game-high 17 points.
