Heritage sophomore Jaylin Cooper hit the shot of the game, an And-1 three with just over six minutes to go in the fourth quarter, making it a game-high 13-point lead. Cooper finished with 14 points.

The Trojans had to play catch up from there, getting it to five points with 1:30 to go.

A foul put Cooper to the free throw line with 70 seconds remaining, and he hit one of two, which kept it a two-possession game. A Saginaw High mid-range jumper rimmed out and was obtained by Tyler Ode. Ode went six for seven at the charity stripe securing the win. 

The Trojans' best quarter was the fourth with 23 points, but they were held to 21 through the second and third combined. Torrion "T.J." Stevenson Jr. paced SHS with 20 overall, half in the final quarter.
