Kadey Dreiling tied the game with a two-pointer, then sank a 3-pointer with 1 second left to give Andale a 41-38, come-from-behind victory over Wichita Northwest in the seventh-place game of the Mid America Classic Saturday afternoon.

Andale charged back with a 17-9 fourth quarter and overcame some cold shooting for the uplifting victory.

Dreiling had missed her first seven shots of the game before knocking down her two clutch baskets. 

Northwest had led 38-36 when Dreiling scored on a short jumper with 16 seconds left. The Grizzlies then turned the ball over and after a timeout, Dreiling found herself 20 feet from the basket and then swished the shot.

Andale overcame 11 of 45 shooting from the field and 16 of 31 at the foul line.

Dreiling finished with 10 points as she did make 5 of 6 free throws before her final explosion. Northwest, which came in 6-4, wound up the only winless team of the tournament. The Grizzlies were led by Ziara Davis with 11 points, going 7 of 7 at the foul line.
