The $3 tickets for Tuesday night's main event, a girls' basketball game that had been anticipated for months, sold out quickly, but a line of hopeful fans still filled the hallway adjacent to the gym at Bishop McNamara High.

Eventually they were told they could go to the school's cafeteria, where a live stream of the game would be shown. Many of them did just that.

The game, matching No. 1 McNamara and No. 2 St. John's, proved to be a spectacle worthy of the hype as the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference foes provided action, drama and heartbreak. In the end, it was St. John's, which has won the past two conference titles but was taking a rare turn as the underdog, that emerged with a 67-65 overtime win

"It was one of the coolest atmospheres I've ever been in," St. John's sophomore guard Azzi Fudd said. "It made us want to show them something."
