The Evans Lady Knights used the long ball to advance to the finals of the Region 2-AAAAA Girls Basketball Tournament at Jones County.

The Lady Knights had sunk nine 3-pointers by the end of the third quarter in Friday’s semifinal matchup against Houston County (12-13, 5-3 region) and went on to the 71-47 win.

The Lady Knights are now assured of hosting its first round game in the 2012-2013 GHSA Class AAAAA Girls State Basketball Tournament on Tuesday, Feb. 19 at a time and opponent to be determined.

The Lady Knights (18-7, 10-1 region) will face the winner of Northside, Warner Robins and Warner Robins in Saturday’s 6:30 p.m. championship game.

Trailing early and in a tight game until the half, the Lady Knights used the 3-pointer to stay close. A 12-6 deficit became a 12-12 tie after two Allysha McFarland long bombs and they took a 34-30 lead into the half following back-to-back threes by Jasmine Stone and McFarland.

Stone led the Lady Knights with 22 points with McFarland chipping in with 20.
