Down double digits midway through the first and early in the second half the Wildcats battled back to tie the game at 37 heading to the fourth and held the lead several times throughout the final period as Spring Hill struggled with turnovers in the second half. However, Kai’seanne Brashear, who had a monster night tallying 40 points, hit a three to tie the game in the closing minutes and came up with a steal and drew a foul with 1.5 seconds left and hit his 13th and 14th free throws of the night to give the Raiders thew lead. Tullahoma’s half court heave at the horn was just short giving Spring Hill the 58-56 win.
