MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - MVP Taylor Lamb scored 25 points in leading South Greene to its fifth state title, but first since 1992 with a 61-55 win over previously unbeaten Gibson County in the Tennessee Class A girls championship Saturday afternoon.

The sophomore Miss Basketball finalist also grabbed nine rebounds.

Erin Lannom led Gibson County (37-1) with 26 points, including six 3-pointers.

Lannom made two foul shots to give Gibson County a 55-54 lead with 1:46 left, but seven seconds later T.K. Franklin’s layup gave the lead back to South Greene. The Lady Rebels then sealed the win with five free throws shots.

Briana Fields added 10 points for the Lady Pioneers, and Justyce White had nine points and eight rebounds.
