The Raiders eventually tied the game at 50 with less than four minutes left on the clock but the Lady Tigers managed to hold on for a 55-54 win at home in the Sweet 16 Wednesday night.
Seandre Lee scored 16, Mariah Maternik chipped in 15 and LaNiqua Fowler scored 11 in the nail-biter win sending the girls to the Elite Eight at Fort Valley State Saturday.
