Cleandra Roberts scored 18 points and grabbed seven rebounds to lead Miami Norland to a 43-38 overtime win over Pensacola in the Class 4A state girls basketball final Saturday at the Lakeland Center.

Senior guard Stephanie Edwards added 14 points, six rebounds and six assists.

Norland, which outscored the Tigers 12-7 in overtime, outrebounded its opponent 36-32, including 22-8 after halftime.

Pensacola (28-3) got 18 points and a game-high 13 rebounds from senior forward Jasmine Richardson. She was 9-for-15 from the field, while her teammates combined to go 9-for-38.
