Odessa-Montour girls rally from 21 down to beat Greene

What better way to get the Section 4 girls basketball tournament started than with a big-time comeback.

Ninth-seeded Odessa-Montour faced a 19-point deficit at halftime that was still 12 entering the final quarter before the Indians surged past No. 8 Greene, 52-44, in a Class C opening-round game Tuesday night on the road.

The Indians (14-6) tied the game with a 12-0 run in just under three minutes to open the final quarter. They took the lead for good, 44-42, when Alexis Saunders hit a 3-pointer with 2 minutes, 36 seconds left. Kara Reese added a hoop for a four-point lead before O-M went 6-for-6 at the foul line in the final minute.
