Strawberry Mansion won close games in the second round, quarterfinals and semifinals to reach Saturday afternoon's PIAA Class AA state championship, but Khalil Meadows' foul-line jumper missed off the left side of the rim with two seconds to play, and South Fayette, District 7's three-seed, won the AA state title, 49-47.

Mike Lamberti and Pat Zedreck each scored 17 points for South Fayette.

Mansion senior 6-foot-4 guard Devonte' "DJ" Newbill, a Marquette recruit, led the Knights with 15 points, six assists and four rebounds. Fifth-year senior Jamal Jones, a 6-foot-4 forward, finished with 10 points and controlled the glass with 19 rebounds.

Newbill sank a pull-up jumper with 35 seconds remaining to tie the game at 47-47, but Lions senior guard Tyler Henry put in an offensive rebound with 25 seconds to go to put South Fayette up 49-47.

Mansion called timeout with 10 seconds remaining and tried to get Newbill a shot on the right wing. Newbill caught the ball, was double-teamed and forced to pass to Meadows at the top of the key.

Meadows got a good look but couldn't get it to go.

South Fayette's team and fans went crazy at the buzzer. One of the Lions tossed the game ball about 15 rows into the stands.
