The third quarter was another chance for the Tigers to increase their lead. Kadeisha Cook grabbed 5 points, while Morris, Stewart and Savage each picked up 4 points in the third to add another 17 to the Tiger tally.

Both teams produced very little offensively in the fourth, with Greenville adding 8 and Wilcox-Central putting up 5 points to seal the Jaguar’s fate.

Coach Jerome Harris was pleased with the girls’ efforts.

“They went out there and did what we coached them to do,” Harris said. “The moral of the story is that they played harder than the other team. They wanted it more.”

Savage and Morris were the leading scorers for the Tigers with 12 points each.
