AURORA – Events turned so dramatically on Lawrenceburg girls basketball, after leading 31-17 at halftime of Wednesday's River Town Classic opener against Rising Sun, that one Lady Tiger was moved to ask coach Bill Snyder afterward:

“If our last shot had gone in, would we really have won?”

That's the feeling that hung over LHS (5-6) following its 53-52 collapse against the Shiners (7-3), whom they had pressed to the point of distraction in the first 16 minutes.

Rising Sun advances to Saturday night's championship game against South Dearborn (5-6), a 49-34 winner over Switzerland County in Wednesday's game two.

Coach Noel Bostic's Shiners – the only girls team without a River Town title in the tournament's previous 12-year history - hit nine of 12 fourth-quarter free throw attempts – the final one of two by senior Brittany Camden with 5.5 seconds left – to eke out the one-point victory.

“It's like a broken record,” said Snyder. “We play very well at times and very inconsistently at others. One of my assistants told me we went for six minutes without scoring in the fourth quarter.
