Headed for Richmond

No one could fault the Floyd County High School varsity girls’ basketball team for their slow start Saturday night in a state quarterfinal game against Wise County’s J.J. Kelly High School in Christiansburg Saturday night. Not after an emotional week when three-year-old Joshua Cantrell lost his battle with a brain tumor.

But even after missing shot after shot and losing the ball too many times to an aggressive defense from Kelly, the Lady Buffaloes held an eight-point lead at half time and then blew the game open in the third quarter before cruising to an 83-45 victory.
