GW, which was third in the state coaches association preseason poll, is coming off back-to-back seasons of advancing to the state tournament semifinals, but is still trying to find its rhythm. The Patriots started the season late because coach Jamie LaMaster was part of the football team coaching staff that made a deep run into the postseason.
"We gained some experience of playing in a tight game,'' said LaMaster, whose team battled foul trouble the whole night. "I was really pleased with how we finished in the overtime. I thought we played a lot smarter. I think we're fortunate to get out of here with a win. '
The Patriots shot 27.4 percent (17 of 62) against Winfield, missed 11 foul shots and committed 26 turnovers. And for good measure, GW was 4 of 19 on 3s. It was the second straight game GW shot under 30 percent and had 20 miscues.
"We just have to work on the little things,'' Ward said.
Winfield bounced back after a 34-point loss at Princeton.
"We gave a lot of heart and hustle,'' said Generals coach Tim Toler. "We got down by 10 in the third quarter and they could have folded the tents. We were just battling and battling and battled our way back in there. We felt like we had a little something we had to prove and I think we did that.''
Roberson finished with 13 points and was the only player for Winfield to score in double figures. Senior Mara Rhoades contributed nine points, four rebounds and three assists and Eggleton had nine points nailing three 3s.
