The Greeneville High School girls held off Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett 57-53 to claim fifth place in the tournament.

The lead changed hands 19 times in this thriller from start to finish, and the score was tied 10 times.

Dobyns-Bennett led 51-50 with 2:30 left and had the ball, but made a turnover. Greeneville's Sydni Lollar responded with a 3-pointer from out front with 2:05 left to put her team in the lead for keeps.

After the Indians made another turnover, Lollar was fouled with 56 seconds left and made both free tosses to up the lead to 55-51. Dobyns-Bennett got a basket from Lily Griffith to close to 55-53 with 37 seconds left, and they came up with a steal at the 30 second mark to give them a chance.

But the Devils scrapped around for a loose ball on the floor and got a jump, with the possession arrow pointing the way of GHS. Lollar was fouled again with five seconds left, and calmly bucketed both free tosses to ice the game at 57-53.

Lollar had a big game with 26 points, while Leah Fillers knocked down five 3-pointers in her total of 17 points.

D-B was led by Lily Griffith and Meg Francis with 12 points each while Jaden Fullen had 11 points and 13 rebounds. Courtney Whitson, the team's leading scorer, was saddled with three first half fouls and sat most of the second quarter and managed only one field goal.

The Devils improve to 13-4 while D-B is 6-10.
