With just over 5 minutes remaining the Lady Titans were down by 3.
Just over a minute later the score was tied at 35.
A Butcher inside drive put them ahead for good as the team took over
control of the game.
Jenny Wolfe's tough defense was
a constant hazard for Wirt County.
It was Butcher's first triple-double of her career. She scored 24 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and got 10 steals. Although Butcher had trouble finding her shooting range in the early going she made up for it by hitting 14 of 19 from the foul line.
