The University of Wyoming women's basketball team needed overtime, but got back on track Saturday with a 59-56 victory at Air Force.

The Cowgirls (19-6, 12-4 Mountain West) survived thanks to some missed free throws late by the Falcons and a layup from senior Sladjana Rakovic that tied the game at 47-all and forced the extra session.

In the overtime Rakovic added a steal, assist, rebound and another layup on her way to 10 points.

Fellow seniors Marta Gomez and Bailee Cotton both recorded double-doubles, with Gomez going for 17 points and 10 rebounds and Cotton 10 points and 11 boards.

Wyoming wraps up its home schedule Monday when it hosts San Jose State at the Arena-Auditorium before finishing the regular season at New Mexico.
