EVANS — The ball was in the right hands for Gainesville in the final seconds of Friday’s second-round playoff game against Greenbrier. Sophomore Taylor Hawks took the pass from Shikiya Brown, looked both ways and just before time expired drained a finger-roll shot in the lane to secure the upset win of the second-ranked Lady Wolfpack in Evans. Hawks’ shot on an under-handed roll went through the net and as time expired Gainesville’s players took to the court to celebrate the 47-45 victory.
