Radford’s Ayana Avery made eight 3-pointers in a 73-62 loss to High Point on Thursday.
Avery, West Rowan’s all-time leading scorer, was playing close to home and in front of a crowd that included about 20 friends and relatives.
The junior broke the Radford record for 3s with an amazingly accurate night on the road. She was 8-for-11 on triples and finished with a career-high 26 points. She’s scored 20 or more points five times this season.
A story on Avery will be in Monday’s edition.
