SAN ANTONIO—Plano Senior’s determination would not be denied.
On the cusp of history, the Lady Wildcats trailed Converse Judson by as many as 10 in the second half, but their play, and their confidence, never wavered.
Plano made clutch play after clutch play down the stretch to claw its way back into it.The final two minutes turned into a battle of wills, and the Wildcats, fueled by their desire to capture the first state title in school history, did what championship teams do.
After a series of big plays by several different players, Plano had Lolo Davenport at the free throw line with 6.3 seconds left and a two-point lead. Davenport made the first and when the second slipped off the rim, Jordyn Merritt was there for the putback to seal a 62-58 victory and set off a raucous celebration to cap the Class 6A championship game at the Alamodome.
