RLP Wins Niehaus Basketball Title at Vincennes University

The Rivet Lady Patriots got two free throws from Caroline Herman to defeat Whiteland 37-36 in the final of the Niehaus Holiday Hoops Classic. Herman was fouled on a drive with just over four seconds left to go; she hit both free throws to reverse a 36-35 deficit into a 37-36 final score.
Tia Tolbert led with 12 points, while Grace Waggoner added nine. Waggoner and Tolbert were both named as co-MVP’s of the tournament. The Lady Patriots move to 14-0 with the win; they face another tough task as they face the Linton Lady Miners on Thursday, January third.
