Girls basketball: Richland's Turner beats buzzer and Southridge

January 11, 2013 

Hailey Turner rebounded a missed shot and made a putback with 2 seconds left to lift the Richland girls basketball team to a 45-43 Mid-Columbia Conference victory over visiting Southridge on Friday.

Sophomore Jordan Taylor missed a shot from the baseline, but the 6-foot Turner grabbed the rebound and put it back up and in.

“We were up by 15 and let them back in,” Richland coach Cindy McCoy said. “They were aggressive and we missed a few shots. It got down to the end, and it was a big shot by Hailey.”
