ASHTON, W.Va. — So much for gracious guests.
Visiting Buffalo hit eight three-pointers and had four players reach double digits Tuesday during a 82-51 victory over Hannan during a non-conference matchup on Senior Night in Mason County.
The host Wildcats (5-17) dropped their fifth straight decision while also being swept by the Bison (15-6), who posted an 83-55 decision at BHS back on Jan. 24. It was also the regular season finale for HHS before they open Class A tournament play next week at Hurricane High School.
The Bison jumped out to a 17-11 after eight minutes of play, then made a pivotal 28-12 charge in the second canto to secure a comfortable 45-23 cushion at the intermission. BHS kept that momentum going into the third stanza, using a 19-11 surge to claim a sizable 64-34 lead headed into the finale.
Hannan kept things close down the stretch, but the guests closed regulation with a small 18-17 spurt to wrap up the 31-point decision. Buffalo has now won six straight contests following Tuesday night’s outcome.
Ty Page led HHS with 12 points, followed by Kade McCoy and Paul Holley with nine markers each. Brad Fannin was next with eight points, while Stephen Burns and Jacob Brumfield rounded out the respective scoring with five and three markers. Hannan was 7-of-11 at the free throw line for 64 percent while also netting four trifectas.
Levi Jordan paced Buffalo with a game-high 18 points, followed by Michael Erwin with 17 points and Isaiah Robinson with 12 markers. Laythan Good also had 10 points for the Bison, who went 10-of-14 at the charity stripe for 71 percent.
Hannan returns to action Tuesday when it travels to Hurricane High School for a Class A sectional contest.
