Former Southeast High star Bianca Hanna played a key role in leading Paris Junior College to an 80-75 overtime upset over Angelina Friday in a quarterfinal round NJCAA Region tournament contest.
Hanna, the Bradenton Herald’s Player of The Year last season, scored seven points and hauled in seven rebounds with two steals and dished out a team high four assists.
The victory earns Paris (19-12) a spot in Sunday’s semifinal against top seed Trinity Valley College (29-2), which is ranked third nationally.
The tournament is being held at the University of Texas at Tyler. Hanna was two for six from the field and drained one of three attempts from 3-point land.
