JEFFERSON COUNTY 76

SOUTH GREENE 73, OT

Jefferson County made the finals of the Ladies’ Classic for the first time, edging South Greene in a 76-73 overtime thriller in the first semifinal game Friday night.

Down by nine points with 3:45 left in regulation, South Greene staged a furious rally in the closing minute, culminated by a clutch 3-pointer from the corner by Ashlyn Reaves that knotted the score at 63-63 as the horn sounded ending regulation.

The lead see-sawed in overtime, with the Rebs getting the lead at 73-72 with 28 seconds left on two free throws by Jayden Merriweather. Cayla Smith hit a shot for the Pats with 11 seconds left to put Jeff back up by one at 74-73.

With the Rebels’ Braelyn Wykle in control of the ball, she drove the lane and put up a shot that rolled in, but she was called for an offensive foul, nullifying the go-ahead basket with 4.9 seconds to go. Jeff’s Makayla Alvey was immediately fouled on the inbound and made both free throws to up the lead to 76-73 and decide the outcome.

Jefferson (12-4) was led by Smith with 20 points, Alexa Gramann with 18, and Alvey and Madee Denton with 12 each.

South Greene, suffering their first loss after 11 wins to open the season, was led by a game-high 29 points from Wykle. TK Franklin had a double-double with 19 points and 13 rebounds, and Reaves and Kiley Collins each scored 10.

The game was hotly contested from the start. South Greene’s largest lead was eight in the first quarter; Jeff’s largest was the nine-point fourth quarter spread.

OAK RIDGE 50

MORRISTOWN WEST 48

Oak Ridge is in the tournament finals, thanks to a buzzer-beating 12-footer by Bri Dunbar that lifted the Wildcats to a 50-48 win over Morristown West in the second of two exciting semifinal games Friday night.

Morristown West staged a tremendous second half rally when some might have given them up for dead. They were behind the potent Wildcats 32-15 at halftime and trailed by as many as 19 points with 6:21 left in the third quarter.

The two squads traded blows with Oak Ridge’s Khamari Michell-Steen scoring a basket with 35 seconds to go to tie the score.

Morristown West worked the clock down inside 10 seconds but made a turnover, and Oak Ridge got up the floor quickly with Dunbar hitting the basket just prior to the final horn sounding.
