The Lady Warriors came out on top in the title game, defeating Blackman 61-49. Riverdale led by as many as 13 in the fourth quarter, but the Lady Blaze cut it to six with about six-minutes to play. But Riverdale hit 8-of-11 from the free throw line in the final stanza and held them at bay. Riverdale's Shelbie Davenport led them with 23-points. Crystal Dangerfield had 17 for Blackman. Riverdale is now 31-0 on the year. Blackman fell to 26-4, all four losses to Riverdale. They're both in the state's Sweet 16 and will play in the sectional tournament Saturday. Riverdale will host White County at 7pm. Blackman will travel to Bradley County. WGNS will have the Lady Blaze game on the road Saturday, beginning at 6 local time. Winners advance to the Blue Cross Basketball Championships at MTSU next week. For WGNS Sports, I'm Bryan Barrett.
