Minden – 39 Warren Easton – 53
The Benton Lady Tigers punch their ticket to the state finals with a 47-46 win over AJ Ellender. Benton’s Qua Chambers made two free throws with just over three seconds left to take the lead securing the win. Benton will play Warren Easton for the 4A State Title. The two teams having some history as Warren Easton knocked Benton out in the Semi Finals last season.
Mary Ward said, “Just for Qua to go I mean how many kids can go to the free throw line with three point one seconds left and you’ve got to make a one and one to tie and you do that. I don’t know if y’all know this about Qua but she struggled all year with her free throws so for her to come in and hit those shots I mean that’s just big time.”
