Kelsie Mims’ 10-footer with 46 seconds left in overtime proved to be the game-winner as Jemison’s girls basketball team took a 39-36 overtime win over Chilton County on Monday in the first round of the county basketball tournament.
Shelby Lopez added an insurance free throw with 2.6 seconds left, and CCHS couldn’t get off a last-second shot attempt.
Chilton’s Chynna Davis sent the game into OT with a 3-pointer with 24 seconds left in regulation.
Jemison’s Katika Nunn scored a game-high 17 points.
Jemison plays Maplesville at 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
