MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - In Girls' Class A hoops, a state championship was on the line as Union City battled Jackson County in Murfreesboro.

Early in the third quarter, Jackson County was looking to build on a 20 to 16 halftime lead when Jaycee Coe hit the 3, making it 29 to 23.

Minutes later, it is Coe again, from almost the same exact spot, drilling another 3, breaking it wide open.

Jackson County goes on to win the Class A Bluecross Basketball Championship. The final score is 48 to 35.

It is the school's eighth state title.
