The Ashe County High men's basketball team continues to dominate the competition. The Huskies (12-1; 8-0 in the Mountain Valley 1A/2A Conference) destroyed West Wilkes 73-46 in West Jefferson Friday night.
The Huskies, ranked seventh in the state in Class 2A by

NCPreps.com, led 14-3 after one and 39-5 at the intermission. Sam Gammons led the Huskies with 20 points. Zeb Richardson had 11. Ashe County entertains Watauga Wednesday night. The Huskies are 7-2 at home against the Pioneers in their last nine meetings at Husky Gym.
West Wilkes won the women's game by knocking off Ashe County 34-30. The Huskies (4-9; 2-6) have lost five of their last six games. The Huskies actually led 16-8 in the second quarter and 20-14 at halftime. But they squandered another fourth-quarter lead.
Paige Spell led Ashe County with eight points; MacKenzie Johnson and Emily Flanagan each had seven. The Huskies hope to turn their fortunes around against WHS Friday night. The Huskies have beaten the Pioneers 17 consecutive times.

 

TIGERS SNAP 26-GAME SLIDE

It didn't take head coach Rob Bliss very long to get the Fred T. Foard High men's basketball team into the win column. Bliss inherited a team that had lost 23 straight Northwestern 3A/4A Conference games and 30 consecutive times against conference opponents. Well, those streaks came to an end Friday night as the Tigers (11-4 overall; 1-3 Northwestern 3A/4A Conference) defeated Hibriten 68-54 in Lenoir. It's the first time Fred T. Foard has won in the NW3A/4A Conference since the league was formed back in 2009-10.
Jordan Turner led the Tigers with 25 points; Brice Falgout had 14. Jordan Rutherford led the Panthers (7-4; 1-2) with 32 points.
