The Mavericks (10-10, 2-4) trailed 54-41 with four minutes to play, but climbed to within 60-57 with 41 seconds left on a steal and layup by Jaylin Coleman. Southside, though, could not get the one defensive stop to get a possession to potentially tie the game.

Gravette 52, Elkins 39

Behind the play of Trembly, Dayten Wishon, who scored 11 points, and Chris Childress (12), the Lions (16-5) were able to extend their lead to as many as nine. Elkins pulled within six in the fourth quarter, but Gravette hit free throws down the stretch to secure the victory.

Paxton Bennett led Elkins (15-7, 9-5) with 13 points. Chad Graham added nine.

Hayden Holtgrewe and Nick Coble scored 13 points each and Mikey Mahoney chipped in 12 to round out the quartet of double-digit scorers.

The Lady Panthers (7-16) closed the margin to 21-15 on a 3-pointer by Jael Harried and buckets by Morgan Vaughn and Hadlee Hollenback before a personal 8-0 run by Culpepper, including a pair of 3-pointers, pushed the lead to 36-20 by halftime.

With Pea Ridge (10-13, 5-7) only up two points with 45 seconds left in the game, Adams deflected a pass intended for the Saints' Katie Thompson, corralled the loose ball and scored a left-handed layup to give the Blackhawks a two-possession lead.

The steal forced Shiloh (11-10, 6-8), who had been playing tight, on-ball defense, to foul Pea Ridge's Hollyn Davis on the next two possessions. Davis responded by going four-of-four from the line in the last 30 seconds. The junior finished with a game-high 16 points and was clutch in the fourth quarter after she scored nine and went six-of-seven from the free-throw line.
