Despite loss, Wildcats having a great season

Ranked 12th in the state going into last night, the Armstrong Wildcats (14-2, 7-2) boys’ basketball team dropped a close one to the rival Henrico Warriors 72-71:

On Jan. 3, Armstrong gave Henrico its only district loss when the Wildcats beat Henrico 74-72. In both games, Henrico built first-half leads, only for Armstrong to rally back.
This time, when Armstrong held a 45-35 third-quarter lead, Henrico responded.

MaxPreps gives props to Rob Valentine for his effort in the game:

“Big Shot” Rob Valentine hit 7 three pointers and scored 26 points as the Armstrong Wildcats lost a close game to the Henrico Warriors. The game was highly contested and went downt to the wire. Valentine’s big shots kept the Wildcats in striking distance for a victory, however they came up short. Great job Rob.

The Wildcats’ next game is Thursday, January 31 at 7PM at home vs the Varina Blue Devils.

Good to see Armstrong doing well. Mealy looks to be having a monster year. Any word on whether he’s getting scholarship offers? With 25PPG and double digit rebounds per game at this level he should be getting some looks even if he is a little undersized.

It also looks like they have a lot of talent returning next year too.
