Eastern Washington’s Jade Redmon converted the winning layup with 0.4 seconds left as the Eagles edged Washington State 67-65 in the Women’s NIT on Wednesday at Pullman.

“I was really nervous at first because they came out trapping, so I got a little frazzled,” Redmon said. “I knew we were tied so it doesn’t really matter but I was just glad we got the roll.”

Lia Galdeira scored 31 points for the Cougars (17-15). Mariah Cooks had 15 points and 10 rebounds.

Eastern’s Lexie Nelson scored 19 points. The Eagles (21-11) will play the winner of Sacramento State-Pacific at a site and time to be determined.
