The RVC women's basketball team defeated Montgomery College- Rockville in the first round of the NJCAA tournament Thursday afternoon, 67-62 in overtime.

RVC freshman Revonnia Howard tied an NJCAA tournament record with 28 rebounds. The record was originally set in 1979. Howard gave the Golden Eagles a three point lead with under 20 seconds to play in overtime with a bucket in the paint. Jessica Gamble later sealed the win by sinking two free throws to make it a five point lead.

RVC moves to the semi-finals on Friday night at 6:00 p.m. against #1 seed Anoka Ramsey Community College.
