Allen girls shock No. 1 seed Asher

Calvin — Allen and Roff turned the girls bracket upside down Wednesday at semifinal night at the weather-delayed Pontotoc Conference Tournament in Calvin.

No. 5 seed Allen scored the go-ahead basket on a putback basket by Charlea Leonard with 12 seconds left to upset No. 1 seed Asher 48-46 in the opener.

No. 3 seed Roff joined the Lady Mustangs in the finals after watching almost all of a 20-point fourth-quarter lead disappear before turning back No. 2 seed Vanoss 41-31.

Roff head coach Blake Crawford said he looks forward to the unlikely championship matchup, scheduled for 6 p.m. Saturday.

“Allen’s got a good ball club. With us and Allen in the finals, I don’t think anybody saw that coming,” he said. “I think it will be a good game. I think we match up well with them.”

The first girls game Saturday will be a consolation title game at noon, followed by the girls third-place contest between Asher and Vanoss at 3 p.m.

Allen 48, Asher 46

After Leonard gave her team the lead, Asher hurried the ball down court and called time out with eight seconds left. Haley Odell missed a 3-pointer, and the Lady Indians misfired on a potential game-tying putback before time ran out.

Asher ended up making just 15-of-58 two-point field goals in the contest and also hit just 7-of-14 free shots.

“It just wasn’t meant to be for us tonight,” said Asher head coach Tari Dubler, who saw her team fall to 5-2 on the year. “We just couldn’t score and gave them too many opportunities.”

Asher led 30-24 at halftime, but Allen cut the lead to 37-36 heading into what would be an exciting fourth quarter. Asher freshman phenom Tarin Dubler picked up four fouls in the pivotal third period and sat on the bench for around five minutes before playing the final five and a half minutes of the game. She still scored a team-high 14 points.
