Only 90 seconds stood between Libby Pike and a sour end to her 18th birthday.
The Anderson County backup center was watching from the bench as Simon Kenton forged its second 10-point lead of the the girls' Eighth Region Tournament championship game, but the senior kept her hopes up.
“I had faith in us,” Pike said. “I knew we could still come back.”
Had the Lady Bearcats not made it all the way back, chances are Pike would remember one of those signature birthdays in one's life with a bad memory.
