And sometimes that’s for the best.
That’s the way the ball bounced — literally — for the Lady Tigers Saturday as Grambling State University took its first Southwestern Athletic Conference win of the season by defeating rival Southern 57-56.
Trailing by one with less than 10 seconds remaining, Lady Tigers coach Nadine Domond called a timeout to set up a play.
And the last second heroics were provided by GSU’s top two scorers in the game —Monisha Neal and Bre’Nae Andrews — even if things didn’t go according to plan.

011115 BUCK KYLIE GARRIS C.jpg

Kylie Garris, Farmerville mother of three, decided she needed a break from being mom to three youngsters — a 3-year-old daughter, 18-month-old son and newborn baby girl. Her husband, Tom, agreed to keep the children on the afternoon of Oct. 30 to give his wife a couple of hours of solitude. The location of her quiet spot was her deer stand located on her mother-in-law’s property in Union Parish.
Her solitude turned into a time of excitement when a big 13-point buck stepped out. One shot from her 30.06 and the big buck was down.
