Morristown West and South Greene continued the trend of close games on the final day of the tournament as the Lady Trojans staved off a furious second half rally by the Rebels and won a 57-56 nail-biter in the third place contest. The two teams had met for the 2015 Classic championship. 

South Greene, down 35-24 at halftime and who had trailed by as many as 15 points in the first half, turned to a red-hot 3-point attack by the Wykle sisters, Braelyn and Kinsley, to get back in the game in the third quarter.

Kinsley, a junior, bombed in six on the night, and Braelyn, a sophomore, hit three, and the rally had the Rebels back in the contest. A 22-8 third quarter run left the Rebs up 46-43 heading into the final period.

The lead then see-sawed throughout the final quarter. A layup by TK Franklin off an assist by Lyndsey Cutshaw with 1:12 left in the game put the Rebels up 56-55, but Sydney Newsome hit two clutch foul shots with 26 seconds to go to put the Trojans up 57-56.

South Greene had the ball for the last shot, and they called time out with seven seconds to go to set up a play. But a pass into the lane was swatted to the floor and West came up with the loose ball as the final horn sounded.

Blayre Shultz scored 28 points to lead the Trojans while Newsome finished with 14 points and 15 rebounds.

South Greene got 20 points from Braelyn Wykle, 18 from Kinsley Wykle and nine points and 11 rebounds from Taylor Lamb.

The Trojans are 13-2, and the Rebels are 14-3 on the year.
