BOONEVILLE -- It took an extra period for the Lions to get it done.

Biggersville banked in 12 points in overtime for a 64-57 win over the Thrasher Rebels to earn the third seed in Division 1-1A.

Jada Tubbs posted 27 points for the Lady Lions, and Savannah Davis knocked down four 3-pointers on her way to 17 points.

Both totals marked season highs for the duo.

The Lions played from behind for most of the game after posting only 6 points in the opening minutes.

A 9 point deficit marked half-time, and the Lions moved out of the locker room for a 12 point third quarter where they would outscore the Lady Rebels by 2 but trail 36-29.

The Lions 23-point fourth quarter made up the difference, forcing an overtime period where Tubbs posted 8 points in the paint.

Bridgett King, Ebonie Welch and Xenia Sorrell all reach double digits for the Rebels with 19, 14 and 10 points.

The Rebels will hit the road on February 18 for a match-up against the top seed in Division 4-1A.

Biggersville will also travel to a 4-1A match on Monday. Brackets will be determined today.
