HOOVER – The Hartselle Tigers snapped a four-game losing streak during the Big Orange Classic last week.
In first round action, though, Hartselle fell 68-58 in overtime to eventual tournament champion Pleasant Grove. In the elimination round, Hartselle defeated Prattville and went on to a fifth-place finish by beating Shaw (Ga.) 66-64.
Against Pleasant Grove, Hartselle jumped out to a 7-0 lead before faltering. The game was tied at 27-all at halftime and Hartselle appeared it would hold on to a three-point lead at the end of the third. However, Pleasant Grove's Al Autman hit a three-pointer from just inside halfcourt to tie the contest.
Hartselle trailed by as many as five in the final quarter before rallying at the end. Zac Ward hit a layup with five seconds remaining to force overtime.
Hartselle began the overtime session with three turnovers, leading directly to five points for Pleasant Grove. Hartselle was outscored 10-0 in overtime.
