Class AAAA girls: Buford 51, Fayette County 39

Camille Anderson scored 10 of her game-high 17 points in the fourth quarter as top-ranked Buford (29-3) pulled away late for a 51-39 victory over Fayette County in the Class AAAA girls semifinals Saturday at West Georgia, putting the Wolves in the state championship game for the sixth time in seven seasons.

The game was tied 35-35 with 5:21 to play, but the Wolves outscored Fayette County 16-4 the rest of the way. Katy Bisges added 11 points for the Wolves, and Whitney Williams led Fayette County with 10.

Anderson, an N.C. State signee, suffered what appeared to be a serious knee injury less than four minutes into the game, but she returned at the start of the second quarter and hit her first shot, a 3-pointer.

Buford lost to St. Pius 48-45 in the Class AAA final last season and is seeking its first title since 2011, when the Wolves won Class AA for the third consecutive season.
