Final: Paideia 52, Randolph-Clay 47, OT (Roundup, running score)

Paideia's shooters struggled to find the basket when they stood on free-throw line. Their lack of success was part of the reason it went to overtime against Randolph-Clay on Thursday in the GHSA Class AA girls basketball semifinals.

But the Pythons were 4-of-6 in the overtime period to give them a 52-47 win over the Lady Red Devils. Paideia will play the winner of the Savannah Christian-Wesleyan winner 3 p.m. Saturday.

Paideia got a scare early in the second half when starting point guard Elizabeth Leon laid on the court after colliding with a Randolph-Clay player. The four-year starter left limping off the court and was out of the game for the rest of the third quarter and the first minute of the fourth quarter. But she returned to the game and continued to be aggressive on defense.

Randolph-Clay started the second quarter trying to slow things down by passing the ball to nearly every player before driving inside. It worked for a while as the Lady Red Devils increased its lead to five. But after a timeout, Paideia sped the game up. Senior Alana Pulliam stole the ball and drove the ball down the court for the easy layup and started a 9-0 run that gave the Pythons a 20-16 lead with two minutes left in the half. But Randolph-Clay regrouped to score the final eight points to take a four-point lead.
