MINNEAPOLIS -- Shea Oman's three-point play with four seconds left proved to be the game-winner for the New London-Spicer girls basketball team on Friday in the Class AA Minnesota State Girls Basketball Tournament semifinals on Friday at Williams Arena.

With the final seconds winding down and the Wildcats tied with Sauk Centre at 46, Oman drove from the top of the key, made the shot and drew a foul. She hit the free throw and Sauk Centre's last-ditch 3-point attempt fell short, advancing the Wildcats to today's championship game with a 49-46 win.

The unseeded Wildcats play Plainview-Elgin-Millville for the Class AA title at 2 p.m. today at Williams Arena.
