Girls basketball: Buford rallies to beat Wesleyan; Dawson beats Brookwood; LA wins; Gainesville loses

By AccessWDUN Staff

DACULA — Buford escaped the Dacula Tip-off Tournament championship game with a 50-49 win over Wesleyan on Tuesday.

In dramatic fashion, Wesleyan held Buford (6-0) scoreless for almost the entire fourth quarter while taking a 49-48 lead with just 30 seconds remaining.

Buford coach Gene Durden took time out after his team forced a turnover to set up what turned out to be the game-winning play. Tate Walters hit the go-ahead layup off a pass from Ashiya Willis. The shot sealed the game.

Walters finished with a team-high 13 points, while Blair Willis and Sara Viti scored 12 each -- all 3-pointers.

The Wolves will play host to Rabun Gap on Dec. 5 at Buford Arena. Game time is set for 6 p.m.

SOUTH FORSYTH 68,
GAINESVILLE 48
