With the win, Lawrenceburg advanced to Saturday’s semifinals to face Madison.  This game came down to the wire with the Lady Tigers nipping the Lady Cubs 41-39.

Madison’s Jessie Dyer stole the ball under her own basket after the Tigers rebounded a missed Madison free throw.  With 46 seconds left, MHS led 37-36.

White banked in a 3-pointer with 23 seconds showing to push LHS back in front 39-37. Dyer then scored at the rim and tied the game, 39-39, with 14 seconds on the clock.

Following an exchange of timeouts, Justice Chambers threw a near three-quarter court pass over the Madison defense to White who was fouled in the lane. White made both free throws with nine seconds to play. It was now 41-39 Tigers.

Following yet another time out, Madison put the ball in play and drove into the lane but was called for traveling with 2.8 to go.

The Tigers, again, went long with the inbound pass but it went out of bounds after touched by an LHS player.  However, Madison had less than a second left. A desperation one-handed heave from the backcourt came up well short.  The Tigers hung on to win by two.

White again led the Tigers in scoring with 17 points.  Chambers scored 8.  Kemper had 5 points, 7 rebounds and 3 blocks.  Farmer only scored 2 but had a team-best 8 boards.

Madison stats were not available.

With the win, Lawrenceburg (21-4) advances to Monday’s championship game against Greensburg (19-4). The No. 8 Lady Pirates beat Rushville 58-54 in the other semifinal.
