In their at-home game Tuesday night, Taylor Tanita was the player of the moment after she hit a 17-footer during the final buzzer against Orange Lutheran in the CIF-SS Division 2A semi-final game.
The final score? 42-40. It was a nail biting finish, but Tanita’s heart stopping last second save has secured the girls’ basketball team a berth in the finals on Friday.
