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.

Alcoa 65, SMHS 53: The SMHS Lady Panthers trailed 16-11 after the first quarter and 33-24 at the break; however, they outscored Alcoa 17-16 in the third quarter to slice the lead to 49-41. Alcoa finished the game with a 16-12 fourth quarter for the final margin.
