PLAIN CITY -- A year ago, Shelbee Molen probably would not have made or even taken that shot.
But after countless hours in the gym and newfound confidence, Molen hit that shot Friday to give the streaking Silver Wolves sole possession of the league lead.
Layton High sophomore Hailey Bassett scored on a 5-footer in the paint with 5.5 seconds remaining, giving the once-beaten Lancers a 57-55 lead.
After a Fremont timeout, the clock was reset to 4.7 seconds with the Silver Wolves inbounding the ball in backcourt.
With only two second-half team fouls, the Lancers' Maddi Smith fouled Molen following Kealani Sagapolu's inbounds pass at 3.5 seconds. Sydnee Ward then inbounded the ball just past halfcourt to Molen, who splashed in a game-winning 3-pointer from the right angle as the buzzer sounded.
Molen's triple secured Fremont's 10th consecutive victory, a 58-57 Region 1 win, which kept the team undefeated in the Wolf Den this season.
"I think this is the biggest shot I've ever made. It was insane," said the 17-year-old Molen. "In the moment, it was awesome. Coach (Lisa) Dalebout drew up a play for us, and I knew if we executed I could get a good shot.
"I came off a double-screen by Amanda (Wayment) and Kealani, and Kealani set the screen to get me open. It was awesome execution by everyone," she said. "The shot felt good, and when it went in I didn't know what to do."
Molen, a junior combo guard, scored a game-high 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting -- 4 of 8 on 3-point attempts -- for Fremont (12-1 overall, 4-0 league). Her deep 3 from the left angle deadlocked the score 55-all with 22.9 seconds left.
The BYU commit also had three rebounds, four assists, two steals and four turnovers for the Silver Wolves, who shot 54.3 percent (25 of 46) and were 50.0 percent (6 of 12) from beyond the arc.
"I got a good look and I made sure I was behind the (3-point) line," Molen said. "I think I have matured mentally, my self-confidence has gone up and I want the ball in a situation like that.
"I was expecting to get fouled again, and when I didn't I kept going through the play," she said. "At first, I thought I would have to try a quick shot and hopefully draw a foul."
Wayment, a senior center who has signed with BYU, went 9 of 13 from the floor for 18 points with two boards, one assist, two steals and two turnovers. Sagapolu had six points, six rebounds, four assists and one block.
Senior point guard McKenzie Burrows dished off six assists with two boards and only one turnover for Fremont.
"We knew it would be an intense battle and we had to come out and play our hardest," Molen said. "This will help our confidence, playing through this type of game and coming out with a victory.
"It was nerve-racking playing through such an intense and physical game," she said. "Even down two points, we knew we had time. We told ourselves, 'We can do this.' It was a cool moment for us. It was back-and-forth the entire game."
Fremont got outrebounded 19-17 and had 20 assists, five steals and 10 turnovers.
"Out of the timeout, we wanted to foul," said Layton coach Van Price. "We were playing it by ear and wanted to keep fouling until time ran out. We had a plan for the next possession, but we were out of timeouts.
"The loss is on me," he said. "The girls are young and they made a mistake. I don't want to blame them. They played their hearts out. Molen hit two deep 3-pointers to win the game for them."
Senior center Jaden Anderson tossed in a team-high 15 points and Bassett had 13 for the Lancers (11-2, 3-1), who had their 10-game winning streak snapped.
Smith, who had two first-half fouls, finished with 10 points. Her 3-pointer with 3:41 remaining pulled Layton within 50-49.
Jaden Anderson's consecutive baskets put the Lancers up three with 2:11 left.
Layton shot 45.7 percent (21 of 46) and was 28.6 percent (4 of 14) from 3-point range with 12 turnovers.
"We were in man-to-man on both possessions, and they were fantastic shots by Molen," Price said. "Our best defender, Maddi, was on her both times. You worry about a pass underneath for a layup, but you can't leave Molen alone.
"It was a good game, both ways," he said. "Two well-coached teams and great players. I thought we had it won after Hailey's basket off a great inbounds pass by Cassidy (Anderson). There is still a lot of season left."
* WEBER 46, SYRACUSE 45: At Pleasant View, the Warriors' Hanna Johnson converted a pressure-packed free throw with 12 seconds remaining to put Weber ahead. Taylor Coffey's basket had tied the score 45-all with 30 seconds left.
"We jumped out to a nice lead at halftime (22-14)," Weber coach Mark Hansen said. "They got us in a little foul trouble in the second half and worked their way back into it, before tying it at 45. That free throw by Hanna was huge."
Abbie O'Neill had a 14-point, 12-rebound double-double for the Warriors (2-13, 1-4), who snapped a seven-game skid. Hannah Charlton scored 12 points.
Demi Hamblin had a game-high 19 points and Coffey added 10 for the Titans (6-7, 2-2).
* DAVIS 55, NORTHRIDGE 40: At Northridge High, Sarah Beecher and McKenzie Day combined for 35 points and the Darts (6-8, 2-3) dropped in six 3-pointers.
Beecher scored a game-high 18 points; Day had 17.
Sophomore Karissa King had 17 points, three rebounds, one assist and four steals for the Knights (5-8, 1-3).
* CLEARFIELD 54, KEARNS 32: At Clearfield, the Falcons (3-9, 2-3) are 2-2 in their last four games.
Bailey Douglas scored a game-high 22 points and Tayley Stoddart tossed in 14 with three 3-pointers.
* MORGAN 69, UINTAH 38: At Vernal, the Trojans (13-1, 1-0) extended their winning streak to six.
Lisa VanCampen and Breanna Hurlbut each scored 18 points. Point guard Rashel Blazzard tossed in 16, as the Morgan trio combined for 52 points.
