Bautista's heroics help Georgia boys rally past Tennessee
CHATTANOOGA (TFP) -- There is nothing like a plan when it comes together, to hear Dade County boys' basketball coach Glen Hicks tell it.
Hicks, who was the Georgia head coach in the Tennessee-Georgia all-star game Tuesday at Notre Dame, jokingly took full credit for the play that sent the boys' game to overtime, where the Georgia squad pulled out a 76-74 victory.
Dalton's Alex Bautista made the off-balance 3-point shot from the left side of the court at the regulation buzzer.
Massengill leads Tennessee girls to all-star victory
CHATTANOOGA (TFP) -- It's seldom a star basketball player will go to an all-star game with the intention of not scoring, but that's just what Mariah Massengill did Tuesday night.
The recently graduated Silverdale Baptist Academy all-star guard dominated the fourth quarter as the Tennessee squad rallied for a 66-57 win in the "Stump On Sports" Tennessee-Georgia girls' game at Notre Dame. She was the player of the game for the victors.
The Eastern Kentucky University signee, while dishing out seven assists and getting four steals, had no choice but to deviate from her game plan. She scored six of her 12 points in the final period as the Tennessee stars broke open a close game.
