Lauren Davis hit two free throws with 14 seconds left to seal New Town's 45-42 victory last night over Poly at the second annual Breezy Bishop Classic.

After the teams traded leads for most of the fourth quarter, New Town pulled ahead for good on Amirah Tucker's eight-foot baseline jumper with 2:27 to go. Neither team managed to score for more than two minutes. The host Engineers were forced to foul, and Davis hit both shots.

Davis led the Titans (2-1) with 14 points, while Tucker and LaQuayla Payne had 10 each. Breonna Brewer led the host Engineers (2-1) with 13 points.
