HOT SPRINGS (KFSM) - In the two regular season meetings between North Little Rock and Northside, the Grizzlies came up short both times including a three overtime thriller.

In the third meeting, guard Tevin Brewer made sure Northside would bring home a state championship.

With 6.7 seconds left and leading by one, Brewer picked the pocket of North Little Rock and secured the Grizzlies 50-49 win inside Bank of the Ozarks Arena.
