Beckley, WV (WOAY) – Two years ago, Greater Beckley Christian advanced to the boys basketball state tournament after a regional win at Valley.
On Thursday, it was the Greyhounds who established momentum early, leading by double digits for much of the night in a 65-48 win at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center.
Greater Beckley made several plays in the second half to start potential comeback attempts, but Valley was quick to respond at the other end. Spencer Dean had 20 points while Dondre Davis added 16 for the Greyhounds; Jay Moore led the Crusaders with 17 points.
Valley is the eight-seed in next week’s Class A state tournament, and will play Wheeling Central Catholic at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, March 15th.
