Boys games

RAGLAND 57, FAITH CHRISTIAN 51: Jordan Turner scored 26 points and the Purple Devils held Faith to 31 percent shooting (12 percent from 3-point range) to pull into a tie for first place in the area.

The Lions led 29-22 at halftime, but Ragland came out firing in the second half. Turner scored nine and Javaris Turner added seven in the third quarter as the Purple Devils opened 45-35 lead going into the fourth quarter. 

There was no girls game. Faith Christian has gone into COVID quarantine, forcing it to forfeit Friday’s opening-round game with Donoho in the Calhoun County Tournament. The boys team isn’t affected.

Because of the situation, there will be no 3 p.m. County Tournament game Friday at JSU. The first game of the day will start at 4:30 p.m.

PIEDMONT 63, PLEASANT VALLEY 60: The Bulldogs broke away from a tied game and took the lead with less than a minute to play. It was a four-point game with 14.2 seconds left. PV hit the first of two free throws to get within three, but their desperation 3 at the buzzer missed the mark.

The Bulldogs honored their two milestone scorers at the game. They recognized Alex Odam and LeLe Ridley for surpassing the 2,000- and 1,000-point plateaus in their careers. 

Once again, neither Odam or Omarion Foster played for the Bulldogs. Instead, they were led by Ish Bethel’s 18 points. Cole Wilson and Gavin Lawler added 11 and 13, respectively.

Garrett Cranmer had 28 for PV, 18 in the second half.
