Health issues kept me from attending the Lady Buffaloes 61-20 stampede of the Radford Cougars on the Alan Cantrell Court at Floyd County High School Monday night but scoring cards and The Roanoke Times, which is a partner with The Floyd Press helped me prepare this report on the game.
Sophomore Karley Bond led the Ladies scoring with 15 points, followed by Carly Thompson and Sabrie Blevins with seven apiece, Karleigh Wade with 6, Destiny Harman 5, Mackenzie Thompson 4 along with Leah Hamlin and Zoey Snavely 2 each. Bond and Carly Thompson each scored a three-point goal.
Floyd led 17-8 in the first quarter, 28-13 at the half, 48-17 at the end of the third quarter, and cruised to the 61-20 win.
The win gives the Ladies a 9-3 overall record and leads the district undefeated at 3-0,
In Radford Tuesday night, the male Bobcats attack put down the Buffaloes 54-38, the seventh straight win between the two Three Rivers District rivals. Radford coach Rick Cormany is now the second-highest winningest boys’ basketball coach in Virginia High School League history.
