Amanda Padilla was Miss Big Shot on Tuesday night.
Padilla hit the game-tying basket to force overtime and then connected on the game-winner as Mora surprised West Las Vegas 46-44 at Montoya Gym.
Mora improved to 9-3, while WLV — the No. 2 rated team in Class 3A — slipped to 8-2.
“It was nip and tuck the whole way,” Mora coach Mark Cassidy said, noting the game was tied 19-19 at halftime and remained tight throughout.
