Bluefield boys win AA State Basketball Championship


CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Anthony Eades scored 27 points and Bluefield beat Fairmont Senior 63-43 in the Class AA championship game on Saturday.

Top-seeded Bluefield made up for the disappointment of losing to Tug Valley in last year's championship game.

Bluefield (25-3) went ahead to stay midway through the first quarter and used a 17-7 run, including nine points by Eades, to finish the first half and lead 36-23 at halftime.

Bluefield won the third championship in school history, adding to titles in 1995 and 1996.

Corey Coppola and Lykel Collier each added 12 points for Bluefield, which shot 50% (24 of 48) from the floor.

Jarin Hilson scored 11 points and Austin Norman had 10 for second-seeded Fairmont Senior (21-7).

Fairmont Senior was held to its lowest point total of the season.
