Late shot sinks Lady Horns

Thursday, December 11, 2008

There was plenty of drama at the Southerland-Mabee Center on the campus of Williams Baptist College Dec. 4, as the Tuckerman Lady Bulldogs slipped past Viola 43-42 in the annual WBC Tournament.

The Lady Longhorns led for most of the night, but Tuckerman scored the game-winning basket with 10 seconds left, earning the Lady Bulldogs a hard-fought one-point win.

Chasidy Hutson led Viola with 18 points, while Leslie Barker followed with nine.

In boys' action from the tourney's first round, the Riverside Rebels, the eventual champs, knocked off the Longhorns 54-45 Nov. 30.

Viola was down 27-15 at the half, but re-grouped to move in front 36-32. However, the Rebels closed strong to knock off the Horns late.

Blake Baumunk paced Viola with 13 points, with Jordan Cotter adding 10.
