The Glenvar boys’ basketball team is at Alleghany Friday night to complete a three-game week. The Highlanders beat Covington Monday and were scheduled to host James River on Wednesday of this week.
The Highlanders had little trouble with Covington, winning 75-28 on the road. Glenvar was missing two players but that hardly slowed them down.
“We continued the theme of no excuses as we were missing two players, both potential starters,” said coach Cliff Bordewisch. “We talked about imposing our will and not giving teams hope.”
That they did, scoring the first 21 points of the game to take a commanding lead. Glenvar then put it away by outscoring the Cougars 30-6 in the third quarter. Ty Bolling tied his career high with 21 points and he also had seven steals.
The win lifted the Highlanders to 12-3 on the season, setting up Wednesday’s big district game with James River. The Knights were 10-3 after beating Botetourt County rival Lord Botetourt last Saturday night. In the first meeting between Glenvar and River the Knights pulled out a win that went down to the final shot.
Last Friday in Hillsville Glenvar took a 68-54 decision over Carroll County. It was Glenvar’s first time on the floor in almost a week after a snowstorm closed school.
“Always tough to win on the road, especially with no preparation, but I told our guys after the game that our opponents don’t care about excuses,” said Bordewisch. “We have to be ready every possession, every game.”
Stephen Barber led Glenvar with 22 points and Aiden Alexander added 18.
Next week the Highlanders will host Radford Monday, host Floyd Wednesday and play in the Adam Ward Classic against Salem High at Glenvar on Friday, February 4.
