Anyone who follows Floyd County High School girls’ basketball knows they play an aggressive, in-your-face, rough and tumble game that rolls over opponents.
After an uncharacteristic 0-2 start, due in large part to an injury to team leader Lindsey Thompson, the girls’ varsity team now appears on its annual march to the state playoffs.
They dispatched Auburn 74-38 at the FCHS gym Wednesday night and the score might have been even more lopsided if coach Alan Cantrell has not pulled his starters in the fourth quarter.

At 10-2, the Lady Buffs head into a round of district games that should position them for the playoffs.
"We try to get a lot of pressure. Play up-tempo," Buffaloes coach Alan Cantrell told The Roanoke Times. "We try to keep fresh legs in the game. Take [teams] out of their element."
That’s one way to put it. Avancini put it best though:
"That’s Floyd County basketball."
You said it young lady.
