Sagemont’s Ebony Griffin stole an inbound pass under the Miramar basket and laid it in with seven seconds remaining to make it a 55-52 game, but Miramar’s Shamauria Bridges, who finished with 22 points, then hit the second of two free-throw attempts to make it a two-possession game and seal the deal.

Jinks had 14 points and 12 assists with two blocks, and Daniel had 14 points.
