Daily Staff Reports - email@example.com
STRASBURG -- Strasburg rallied from a first-half deficit to defeat Stonewall Jackson,55-49, in non-district boys basketball action Saturday.
The Rams trailed 22-6 after the first quarter and 38-23 at the half. The Generals shot 9 for 11 in the first period, including four 3-pointers. Ian Butler hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to cut the lead to 15 at the half for the Rams, and they turned things around in the second half.
"We played better defense took some things away from them," Strasburg coach Matt Hiserman said. "We did a better job shutting down their penetration. We told them at halftime we had to play better defense, and get the ball inside offensively. Ryan Smoot and Jonathan Kloosterman did a good job inside. We got some things going well and we battled back. We didn't panic."
The Rams cut the lead to 44-41 entering the fourth period, and eventually took the lead midway through the final period.
Smoot led the way for the Rams with 16 points and six rebounds. Kloosterman had eight points, eight rebounds and three steals, and Tyler Doman had 11 points for the Rams (5-4, 3-2 Bull Run). The Rams committed only three turnovers in the second half.
Colton Harlow led the Generals (3-5, 0-3 Shenandoah) with 12 points, while Ian Pugh had 10.
SVCA 76, Albemarle 42
Evan Hotek had 16 points, eight rebounds and four assists to lead the Patriots. Patrick McGrath had 15 points, and Tyler Fincham had 12 points and six rebounds for SVCA. Tanner Foster added seven points and 14 rebounds for the Patriots.
Central led by as many as eight points in the first period, and had a 24-21 edge at the half. The Vikings outscored Central 23-10 in the third period. Both teams are in Conference 28 this season.
Katelyn Poston led the Falcons (7-3, 4-2 Bull Run) with 17 points, two assists and two steals. Tamra Scott had 10 points and 12 rebounds for Central.
