Final: Wesleyan 56, Dublin 44 (Roundup, running score)

Wesleyan held Dublin to 23 points through three quarters and held off a hard-charging Dublin team for a 56-44 win in the semifinals of the Class AA state tournament Saturday at the Coliseum.

The Wolves win ended any hopes of an all-Laurens County championship game. East Laurens plays Lovett at 8:30 p.m. tonight.

Dublin trailed 25 points in the fourth quarter but would cut the deficit to 10 with just under a minute to play with its pressure defense. The Irish, however, ran out of time.
