Buffaloes return to basketball play by stomping Giles

Josiah Banks shoots for a three-pointer.

Floyd County High School’s varsity basketball Buffaloes celebrated a return to play after a COVID-19 halt with a 61-25 Senior Night drubbing of Giles 61-25.

The Buffs opened the game with a trio of three-point baskets for a 9-0 lead and never looked back. Hunter Gallimore led Floyd scoring with 16 points, including four three-pointers, and Dylan Bond had 10 points.

Not so with the Junior Varsity, where the Buffs and Spartans swapped the lead back and forth for the first half, but Giles began to widen the lead to as much as 10 points before taking the win 44-36.

In Pearisburg, the Lady Buffs went into the fourth quarter trailing the Lady Spartans but outscored the Giles 33-26 to bring home a 64-63 win. The Ladies return home Thursday night to face Carroll County.
