Prep roundup 1-17: Rams rally past Rappahannock

WASHINGTON, Va. — Strasburg overcame a slow start and cruised to a 63-50 Bull Run District boys basketball victory over Rappahannock County on Saturday night.

The Rams trailed 22-20 midway through the second quarter, before going on an 18-2 run and taking control of the game.

“They came out playing the 2-3 zone and we didn’t attack it real well,” Strasburg coach Matt Hiserman said. “On the defensive end, we really weren’t there early on. They were able to do a lot of the things they wanted to do. They crashed the boards on us.”

Hiserman said the Rams turned the game around by playing better defense and causing turnovers, and then began to hit some shots. The Rams hit 10 3-pointers in the game.

Strasburg was led Tyler Fincham with 13 points, seven rebounds and two steals. Mark Smoot had nine points, and Ryan Smoot had eight points, five rebounds, two assists and three steals. Trevin Howard had eight points and two steals, and Tyler Brill had eight points and two assists for the Rams (12-2, 6-2 Bull Run).
