Valley 85

Nicholas County 74


The Valley High boys went on the road Monday and escaped with a tense victory over Class AA Nicholas County.

The Class A No. 6 Greyhounds rallied from six points down with 47 seconds left in regulation to send the game to overtime and then outscored the Grizzlies 19-8 in the extra period to grab the 11-point win.

While happy that his team captured the victory, Valley coach Joe McCoy lamented the ‘Hounds’ penchant for not always playing up to their capabilities and seemingly ‘turning it on’ when needed.

“One of these days that knob’s not going to turn,” he said.

Still, it was a good win, McCoy noted.

“For not practicing (or playing) since Meadow Bridge (Feb. 11), they played a little better,” he said.

Henry Barron-Houchins tallied 26 points, including five 3-point buckets, to lead four Valley players in double figures. Druw Bowen tallied 18 points, Zac Warden added 17 points and Raeshawn Breckenridge had 16.

Jared Tharp and Cody McClung led Nicholas County (10-7) with 16 apiece, while Zach McCourt added 13.
