BIGGERSVILLE – Corinth won a furious fourth quarter to beat Alcorn County neighbor Biggersville 65-59 Thursday night.
The Class 1A Lions gave the 4A Warriors all they wanted until Desmin Harris hit a 3-pointer to end 11 straight lead changes in the fourth quarter.
The teams traded free throws and Corinth’s Darius Gaines came up with Raheem Sorrell’s miss and Jazz Garner hit another 3 for a 60-55 lead with 2 minutes to play.
Corinth (4-1) missed its first 12 attempts from behind the arc.
“Finally in the second half we got it inside, got some putbacks. (Biggersville) plays so hard. They’re so active. They’re quick to the ball,” Corinth coach Keith Greene said.
