Naples Holiday Shootout girls basketball: Island Coast beats Lely in overtime

ISLAND COAST 41, LELY 38

Island Coast edged Lely in an overtime nail-biter in the Beach Bash round.

“I have the nicest team in America,” Island Coast coach Jerald Ellis said. “We were missing four players in today’s game, three of them starters, but this team never gives up. This has been our mentality since the first day of practice, work hard all the time.”

Island Coast was down with less than two minutes left, but did not lose its cool.

Leanne Ellis led all scorers for Island Coast with 25 points. Ellis also registered three assists and one steal. Ariana Garousi led Lely with 18 points.

Garousi had a chance to tie the game with time running out in overtime, but her three-point shot didn’t fall.
