L2 Productions produced the broadcast of the NCAA record setting women's basketball game on Feb 18, 2016. The game was the longest D1 women's basketball game in history and the footage was featured on ESPN SportsCenter.
It took an NCAA Division I women's basketball record-tying five overtimes and a heroic, career-high effort from Brianna Wright to lift the Tigers to an amazing, thrilling – whatever positive adjective one can use – 100-97 five-overtime victory over Temple before a crowd of 1,521 at the Elma Roane Fieldhouse.
In Thursday's five-overtime contest, there were 22 ties and 17 lead changes. The five-overtime game tied the NCAA Division I women's basketball record for the longest contest in terms of overtimes. The last time an NCAA Division I women's basketball game went to five overtimes was in the 2006-07 campaign. That season, Drexel and Northeastern played a five-overtime game on Feb. 22, 2007.
"The history that was made tonight I didn't know until after the game," said Tigers head coach Melissa McFerin. "There was a lot of will to win tonight on both sides. Temple had a will to win, as did we.
"The crowd tonight was awesome. They stayed in the game. I got to believe they saw our kids working hard on the court, and they weren't going to leave because of the team's effort. That is a testament to both our kids and our fans."
The win improves Memphis' record to 16-10 overall and 10-5 in the American Athletic Conference. With the victory, the Tigers remained fourth place in the league's standing and moved to within a game of third place held by Temple. In the coaches' preseason poll, Memphis was picked seventh.
The victory was Memphis' fourth-in-a-row. The Tigers have won seven of their last eight games, with the lone setback at top-ranked Connecticut Jan. 30.
