Moore connection sends Tish County to 4A final

Feb. 28—JACKSON — The game as a whole was ugly, but the ending was a thing of beauty for Tishomingo County.

Meg Moore's basket with 24 seconds left proved to be the winning points, as the Braves edged Quitman 37-34 in the Class 4A semifinals at the Mississippi Coliseum on Wednesday.
