DES MOINES, Iowa - Unwillingness to quit, that applies, too.

Blake Banowetz scored on an offensive rebound with 5 seconds left in regulation, then 13th-ranked Bellevue Marquette controlled overtime in a 65-57 win over No. 4 Ar-We-Va in a Class 1A quarterfinal at the girls' state basketball tournament Monday at Wells Fargo Arena.

Danielle Bender posted 22 points and 17 rebounds for the Mohawks (17-6), who will face No. 2 Newell-Fonda (23-2) in a semifinal at 8:30 Wednesday night.

Bender scored Marquette's first points of overtime, and they led throughout the extra session.

"I knew I had a mismatch," Bender said. "I knew I could take them inside."

The Mohawks led by 16 points in the first half, then by 15 midway through the third quarter before Ar-We-Va (21-4) rallied. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Paige Danner and Megan Ehlers put the Rockets in front, 52-50, with 28 seconds left.

Banowetz was fouled after grabbing an offensive rebound with 9.2 seconds left. She missed both free throws, but Sarah Lampe rebounded. She missed, but Banowetz rebounded again and scored to send the game to overtime.

Nicole Blum added 11 points for Marquette, Theresa Koos scored 10.

Danner scored 22 for Ar-We-Va.
