Two more free throws by Lucas Crismond gave the Red Raiders a 43-39 lead early in the final quarter, but a three-point play by Qualls started a 14-10 run to retake the lead for good at 57-49 with 1:15 remaining in the game.

The Red Raiders battled back to sllice the lead to 59-56 on a Lance Crismond trey, but Tayler Houston converted the first of two free throws to make the score 60-56. Addison Curtis converted a layup at the buzzer for the final margin of 60-58.

The Lady Raiders extended the lead to 30-16 midway through the third quarter, but a jumper by Courtney Smith triggered a 6-2 run to slice the deficit to 32-23 by quarter's end.

Missy Jones' layup gave the hosts a  34-23 advantage, but a trey by McKenzie Iles started a 11-1 run to slice the deficit to 35-34 with 2:06 remaining in the game. A basket by Michaela Gregory gave Coffee County a 37-34 lead with 43.5 left in the game.
