LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
A missed North Laurel free throw with 3.5 seconds gave the Panthers hope. The game ended with North Laurel making a steal on the inbounds play.
The Jaguars advance to the region semifinals where they face host Harlan County tonight.
“We’ve played (Harlan County) twice. Obviously we did better the second time. These kids have experience under their belt. They know how good Harlan County is and we’re playing them on their home floor, but like I told them if anybody can take them out I think we can,” Sizemore said.
