"We played better offense today. We were unselfish with the ball and made Spartanburg Methodist guard us," said Coach Bagwell. "Spartanburg Methodist deserves credit for getting several big offensive rebounds down the stretch that changed the game."
Those offensive rebounds extended Spartanburg Methodist's lead to 8 under the 3:00 mark, but Louisburg got several steals in the last 1:30 to cut it to 2 points with a shot to win it at the buzzer.
