Late shot lifts
With the game tied at 47 and 3.8 seconds showing on the clock, Bluffton had the ball on its own side of the court with a chance to win the game. And they did just that when junior guard Sarah Schriner inbounded the ball, got it back and fired a 3-pointer to give the Lady Pirates a 50-47 buzzer-beating victory.
“I thought we defended it well,” Lincolnview coach Dan Williamson described. “She just made the shot. We’ll kind of tip our cap to her on that one but I thought we defended that pretty well.”
Bluffton coach Eric Garmatter explained that the Lady Pirates made a last-minute adjustment on the play: “(The girls) deviated on the play because Lincolnview didn’t guard the in-bounds pass. As soon as I saw that, I just yelled for (junior forward) Paige (Buroker) to throw it back.”
