Lady Tribe nearly pulls off shocker

(Continued)

She missed the front end of a one-and-one, and Jacie Dickerson came down with one of her team-high eight rebounds. Da'Sha Boyd, who finished with nine points, made the Wildcats pay at the other end with a 3-pointer to make it a one-point deficit.

Jordan Hankins made a pair of free throws with 31.5 seconds remaining to push Lawrence North's lead to 54-51. And when Anderson failed to convert on the ensuing possession, Hankins essentially put the game away with two more free throws with nine seconds left.

Anderson's Dabriona Williams, who finished with a game-high 17 points, made a 3-pointer just before the buzzer for the final margin.

The Lady Tribe was at full strength for the first time in weeks, with Bentley and Ania Daniels returning from injuries sustained during the sectional. Bentley finished with nine points and two rebounds. Daniels suffered an ankle injury in the second quarter but returned to hit a key 3-pointer in the final period for her only points of the game.

"For those two girls, it was their first game back, and they didn't have any time to prepare," Cook said. "Just jump right back in against the No. 1 team. To come out and play like they did, I couldn't be more proud."

As has been its custom, Anderson's performance was a total team effort. Point guard Samia Carter finished with seven points and at least as many assists, consistently driving into the lane to create opportunities for herself and her teammates.

Kez'Anique Gosha scored four points off the bench and provided timely defensive help, and Shantaz Goolsby added a boost of energy with a brief appearance in the second half.

The Lady Tribe loses six seniors — including Bentley, Boyd, Carter and Gosha — but Cook wasn't focused on the future.

Instead, he was thankful for the efforts of his players this year.

"I've always said the whole is greater than the sum of the parts," Cook said. "This team as a whole is so much better than the sum of its parts. We played that way for 24 games. We came up three games short (of a state championship), though. I hate it (coming to and end), but I am so proud."
