ECRU — New Albany’s spell over the Lafayette Lady Commodores finally came to an end. It wasn’t easy, but the Lady Commodores weathered a 43-point performance from New Albany’s Jazmine Spears to post a thrilling 61-60 win over the Lady Bulldogs Thursday in the Division 2-4A Tournament.
The victory not only improved the Lady Commodores to 12-10 overall, but advanced them to tonight’s 2-4A title game against host North Pontotoc and earned them a home game in the first round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs Monday night.
