The IHSA Class 1A state championship and third-place game is set with Danville Schlarman set to defend its title against Lanark Eastland.

Eastland 64, Tri-County 63

Eastland led for most of the first quarter before Tri-County began settling in. But when Tri-County seemed to have things in control with a 58-51 lead with 3:33 left, Eastland answered with an 8-1 run to tie the game at 59.

Best play: Eastland's Erin Henze (2020) drove the ball to the right-side wing before handing it off, cutting to the right block,moving baseline and again out to the left wing where she was wide-open for a 3-pointer. It gave Eastland a 62-61 lead with 40 seconds left.

MVPErin Henze - 25 points (7-12/6-8/5-6); 3 steals, 2 rebounds, 2 assists

Eastland impression: The Cougars don't win this game without Lydia Coatney's (2020) play in the first half. She finished with 19 points and gave them a lift as Henze struggled to get open looks and Karlie Krogman (2020) went 2-for-16 in the post.

Tri-County impression: Kiersten Price-Wilson (2019) didn't get enough touches with as efficient as she was in the post. She created opportunities for herself off the offensive glass, too.

Schlarman 58, Lewistown 41
