The only other time in her varsity girls basketball career that Huntley senior Haley Ream had a chance to tie or win a game with a 3-pointer, last season against Dundee-Crown, she missed and the Red Raiders lost. Wednesday night, Ream was nothing but net. Ream took a kick-out pass from Sam Andrews and buried a 3-pointer with 3 seconds left in regulation that tied the Red Raiders' battle with Crystal Lake South at Gator Alley in Crystal Lake and sent the game to overtime. And in two extra sessions, Huntley staved off defeat again — not once, but twice. Eventually, 2 free throws from freshman Ali Andrews with 15 seconds left in the second OT held up and after 40 minutes of postseason-like intensity, the Red Raiders escaped Crystal Lake with an exhilirating 54-52 win.
