South Point continues to improve as the Red Raiders are showing that they are still in the hunt for the Southwestern 2A title. 

At East Gaston, the Red Raiders had no difficulties taking down the Warriors in a conference showdown.

South Point came out strong and built up a solid 37-24 halftime lead. 

The Red Raiders continued to dominate in the second half and refused to give the Warriors a chance to get back in the game.

South Point would go on to beat EG 78-49.

Logan Threatt and Ayden Baker were the Red Raiders top scorers with 13 points apiece.

The outstanding performance of the game would have to go to senior Grayson Hansen.

Hansen did a little bit of everything finishing the night with 16 rebounds, 12 points, four assists, and two steals.

The York game proved to be a bit of a change of pace as South Point took a break from conference play.

The Cougars played South Point tight but York was never able to set the pace. The Red Raiders were up 36-28 at the end of the first half.

In the third period, York was able to cut into the South Point lead trailing the Red Raiders 47- 41 at the end of the period. However, in the fourth, South Point was able to hold the Cougars back and move on for the win.

Ayden Baker was the Red Raider’s top scorer with 22 points and 11 rebounds. Logan Threatt had a solid game as well ending the night with 21 points.

It was during the York game that Threatt topped the 1,000 point mark. 

South Point head coach Kody Kubbs is proud of what Logan has accomplished and thinks he is a big part of the Red Raider’s success.

“Obviously it is always impressive when a high school basketball player scores their 1,000th point,” Kubbs said.  “For Logan to score his 1,000th point with at least six games left in his junior year just two-thirds of the way through his junior year is incredible!”

Coach Kubbs looks at Threatt as a dynamic young player who he has had the honor to watch develop. 

“Not only is Logan a tremendous threat to score the basketball, as he is averaging more than 23 points per game,” Kubbs added. “He is also leading the team in assists. It’s been awesome to have a front-row seat the past three years of his growth not only as a basketball player but more importantly as a young man.”

This week the 14-6 Red Raiders will get back to conference action as they travel to Forest City to take on East Rutherford followed by a home game against the R-S Central Hilltoppers.
