Shelby Valley defeats Corbin 45-38

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Shelby Valley's Lakyn Mullins and Brianna Fraley scored 15 points apiece in leading the Lady Cats to a 45-38 win against Corbin Wednesday night in the first round of the KHSAA Sweet 16 in Diddle Arena.

The win was the first ever for Shelby Valley (29-4) in the Sweet 16 and secured a quarterfinal matchup Friday afternoon against Anderson County.

The Region 16 champion Lady Cats led Region 13 champ Corbin (27-9) by as many as 10 points in the third quarter before the Lady Redhounds made a late run.

Corbin's Kayla Wilson appeared to make a layup with 1:41 left that would've given the Lady Redhounds a 40-39 advantage, their first lead of the game. However she was called for traveling and Corbin didn't score again.

Sarah Ashley was the Lady Redhounds' leading scorer, finishing with 10 points.
