Floyd County loses 53-46 to George Mason

Britney Avancini loses the ball  Bria Platenburg during a second-quarter drive

Floyd County High School's Lady Buffaloes varsity basketball team lost their bid for a second straight state championship as the George Mason Mustangs avenged last year's loss in the state semi-finals and beat the Buffs 53-46.

The final score was closer than the game as the Lady Buffs staged a mini-comeback late in the fourth quarter but the team lost control of the game early in the second quarter and never regained momentum. They went cold on the floor and at the free-throw line, missing shot after shot and the Mustangs played Buffalo style basketball with multiple steals.

The Lady Buffs trailed by up to 15 points in the fourth quarter. Britney Avancini finished the game with 19 points and Carmen Bolt with 10 but Avancini was just 5 for 19 from the floor but 8 for 8 at the free throw line.

  2. My apologies as well Tracey. I didn’t read between the lines. And with that I agree with you 100%.

  3. I was talking about Brittany, the person you commented on! Geez! I know full well our girls deserve respect and should be very proud of themselves. The comma I put after your name indicates that I was addressing you about the comment you made about Brittany. Sorry, I didn’t mean to confuse you or make you think I was giving you grief. Quite the contrary.

  4. If you hate the Buffs so much, then WHY are you on a website that posts news about this county? Are you looking for a fight? If so, I can pretty much guarantee that with a comment like that you found one.
