Throwdown Showdown – rivals Cave Spring and Hidden Valley

Round one of the made-for-prime-time varsity doubleheader between Southwest County rivals Cave Spring and Hidden Valley is set for tonight (Fri. Jan. 22nd) at the Knights’ gym.

The girls varsity squads will take to the court at 6 p.m., with the boys matchup to follow at 7:30 p.m. Round two will move to the Titan gym on February 10th.

Cave Spring battled for a tough 50-43 win over Blacksburg Friday night and followed it up with a 94-60 rout of Christiansburg Tuesday to remain perfect in district play. Knights big man Josh Henderson denies the paint to a Blacksburg player down the stretch Friday night.

In the boys game, the defending state champion Cave Spring Knights are undefeated in River Ridge District play at 4-0 and Head Coach Billy Hick’s talented team would seem to have an advantage over the younger Titans (1-2 River Ridge).But throw convention out the window in this rivalry as Hidden Valley Head Coach Troy Wells, a superb tactician in high school hoops, will surely have something up the Titans’ sleeve.

In the girl’s opener, Hidden Valley under Head Coach Randy Bush, continues to improve with 5 seasoned seniors. Cave Spring is coming off their first win of the season Tuesday night over Christiansburg¬† and may have found a spark to ignite Jessica Ficaro’s squad.
