Whether it was Cody McClain, Cheyenne Camillo, Stanley Valentine or one of its other contributors, Hampton had a solution for everything Elizabethton threw in its way.
The Bulldogs followed a 10-point halftime lead with a resounding 16-4 run to open the third quarter and never looked back in a 71-57 win for a season sweep over the Cyclones Tuesday night at Treadway Gymnasium.
“I thought we had a good game plan and the kids stuck with it,” said Hampton coach Ned Smith, whose team led by as many as 22 in the second half. “The kids played real well. The key was keeping their big kids off the glass. They’ve got great players and Coach Honeycutt does a great job with them.
“I’m proud of my kids. I thought they played hard and it’s the best chemistry we’ve had. We moved the ball well.”
