LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) -- Hanna Zavecz scored five of her 28 points in the third and final overtime as Wyoming beat Kansas State 89-78 on Wednesday night in the semifinals of the WNIT.

Zavecz opened the third overtime with a hard-charging layup, and got three more points from the free-throw line. The Cowgirls (26-9) never trailed in the third overtime.
