TALIHINA â€” Nothing like celebrating homecoming with a thrilling victory, and thatâ€™s just what the Talihina Lady Golden Tigers did Friday night on Chris Gillespie Court at Ray Henson Gymnasium.
Down 18-7 after one period, the Lady Golden Tigers tied the game with a buzzer-beater to send the game into overtime. Then, the locals used a strong OT period to win, 51-43.
With seven seconds left, the Lady Savages led 39-36 and were getting ready to shoot the one-and-one. Jeff Oliver, Talihinaâ€™s coach, called timeout to ice the shooter â€” and it worked.
