Lady Cavs continue district dominance

By

HILLSVILLE –– Hello, ‘W.’ Good to see you again.

Carroll County snapped a six-game losing skid when James Lanning scored at the final buzzer, lifting the Cavaliers to a 60-58 Southwest District win Saturday over Grundy.

Lanning had given Carroll County (3-15 overall, 2-6 district) a 58-56 lead with a stickback before Grundy re-tied the game at 58. A missed Carroll shot went out of bounds to the Cavaliers, who called timeout with 2.5 seconds left to set up the final play.

Lanning came off a screen by Isaiah Thompson, took a Tyler Reavis pass and hit an 8-foot bank shot as time expired.

The win was Carroll’s first since Jan. 3, when the Cavaliers won at Grundy.

“It seems like it’s been a long daggone time,” said Carroll County coach Brad Hawks. “It was good for the kids on Senior Night. They’ve been down ... we’ve all been down, but it was good for them to go out on Senior Night and get a big win.”

Tyler Reavis hit five 3-pointers and led the Cavaliers with a triple-double, finishing with 21 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Lanning and Caleb Taylor added 10 points each for Carroll, which rallied from a 12-point second-period deficit.

Grundy’s Jon Kelly led all scorers with 23 points.
