Girls games took over the Thursday schedule in the summer shootout, from Tom Drake Coliseum to the Wellness Center.
Sportspage reported on five games, plus the OT tourney. The design of the OT tourney is for 2 opponents to play 2:00, If the game is tied after 2:00, a minute is then added. If it still even, it comes down to free throw shooting, with the team making the most of five shots to be declared the winner.
In the tourney, Oneonta hit a three in the final seconds to edge Lexington. A free throw contest determined the winner of Decatur Heritage-Hatton with most of these games going down to the wire.
From regular games, the best one was Ranbure vs. Oneonta. Oneonta was ahead 16-11 at the break with Ranburne coming back and taking the lead. Oneonta got a tying basket in the closing seconds that forced sudden death.
Ranburne was able to score twice from the free throw line to pull out victory, in which they were behind most of the way.
