Rosman junior Gracy Briggs goes up for two of her game-high 30 points Tuesday night against Andrews. Briggs scored 14 points in the fourth quarter, including the game-winning 3-pointer as time expired, to give the Lady Tigers a 61-58 win over the Wildcats.

With the game on the line and less than five seconds to play, Rosman junior Gracy Briggs raced down the court, stopped at the top of the key and launched a long three-pointer.

You didn't need to see the ball go through the net to know what happened; the explosion of the home crowd told the story.

After a fourth quarter where the Lady Tigers had their main ball handler foul out and watched an 11-point lead evaporate, Briggs put the team on her back down the stretch – scoring 14 of Rosman's final 17 points in just over four minutes to lead the Lady Tigers to a 61-58 win over Andrews.
