O**** beats buzzer, Marion clips Raiders
Alli's three-point play gave Marion a 50-48 lead with 12 seconds left. But Brittany fouled Williamsburg's Hannah, who swished two free throws to tie the game with 10 ticks left. Sam lofted a 3-pointer from the left wing, but it was deflected and fell about 3 feet short of the rim. Alli grabbed the ball and scored as the horn sounded. "I saw Sam take the shot and I knew it was going to be short," Alli said. "I went for it, grabbed it and shot it."It all happened so fast."

O**** saves Marion — Twice
Alli O**** isn’t the first option in Marion’s offense. Nor the second or third.
But she saved the Indians’ bacon Tuesday night. Twice.
Alli converted a three-point play with 12 seconds left to give the Indians a 50-48 lead, then — after Williamsburg’s Hannah made two free throws to tie it — grabbed a deflected 3-point attempt by Sam, turned and beat the buzzer to give the Indians a 52-50 win.
“I’ve got shivers,” said Alli, who came into the game averaging 4.7 points per game but scored 11 Tuesday.
