Alcoa outscored SMHS 28-19 in the third quarter to slice the lead to 74-53, but the Panthers used a 25-18 fourth quarter for the final margin of 99-71.

With six minutes left in the game, Capps pulled his starters to give his reserves some playing time, and they scored nine points to seal the victory.
