The Annawan girls basketball team lost in the state semifinals to Freeport Aquin, 39-38.
Arizona State signee Sophie Brunner scored a put-back basket with six seconds left to give the Bulldogs the winning edge. She also blocked Morgan VanHyfte's last-chance 3-point attempt.
With less than a minute to play, Maddie Jackson missed the front end of a 1-and-1, but got her own rebound to give Annawan the lead.
Aquin called a timeout and didn't initially get the ball to Brunner. Instead they settled for a 3-point try that rimmed off, and after another failed putback, the ball rolled into Brunner's arms for an easy layup.
Annawan will now wait to play the loser of the second semifinal between Cowden-Herrick and Mt. Pulaski.
