The Tuscarora Huskies claimed the Conference 14 girls' basketball tournament crown with a 53-38 victory versus the visiting Briar Woods Falcons in the championship game Friday in Leesburg.

Tuscarora (20-4) took a five-point lead into the second quarter and opened it up, scoring 10 points in two minutes as senior Ashley Leonard hit the Huskies' first 3-pointer.

Behind a couple baskets by senior Tara Frick, Briar Woods (15-9) worked back to within 30-24 three minutes into the third.

Tuscarora responded as junior Allison Fitz swished an open 3-pointer off Brenna Cochran's kick-out of an offensive rebound, and the Huskies' advantage remained above nine the rest of the way.

Up next for both teams is a slot in the Region 5A North tournament, set to start Feb. 20.
