BIRMINGHAM, AL (WAFF) - The Cordova Blue Devils won their first state basketball championship on Friday. The boys team was victorious over the Madison Academy Mustangs for the 4A title.

The Mustangs (24-12) kept a considerable lead for most of the game until the Blue Devils (26-90) tightened it up in the fourth quarter. Cordova got a break when Isaac Chatman got the ball in the last few seconds but was fouled on the break. He made both free throws to secure the 56-54 win.

The Mustangs' early game was spot-on with a halftime lead of 33-25.
