San Antonio, TX-
The climb was very steep for Clark, with .54 seconds remaining, they trailed by five points. Ramsey Robledo would drain a corner three-pointer to make it 45-43, with .41 seconds to go. Coppell would respond with Free throws. Then Kamryn Griffin would get an opening along the right baseline, bank in the shot and draw the foul. She calmly hit the free throw to make it 47-46, as only .15 seconds remained.
Macy Mercer would return to the line for the Cowgirls. She would put in the first, but miss the second. Arianna Roberson would snag the miss, get the ball to her point guard, Natalie Huff, and she would take it from there.
Huff made her way down the left sideline, picked up her dribble at the three point line, left wing extended. As she came to a stop, the defender would go by her, she adjusted, hoisted the trey, and would sink it. The team would mob her in celebration. Huff had 15 points, and connected on three treys from behind the arc, and hit the most important shot of the game, and potentially her high school career so far.
After a slight delay because of celebration, the referees would decide to put back one second onto the clock, but to no avail as the desperation shot fell wide left and short of the hoop for Coppell.
The game was back and forth all four quarters. Roberson would lead Clark with 22 points, 11 boards, and 4 blocks. Her stellar night started ominously as she picked up 2 very quick fouls in the first quarter and exited at the 5:42 mark, but would not sit long. She returned at the end of the 1st quarter. She would play masterfully the rest of the way, not picking up another foul until the fourth frame, and her play in the paint both offensively and defensively played a big part in Clark advancing.
Clark advances to the 6A title game, which is set for tip at 8:30pm on Saturday night. They await the winner of Desoto/Pearland.
