SUMMIT — Boyd County and South Point threw a 3-point party on Friday night, and everyone was invited.

Grayson Griffith packed the biggest 3-point punch with six long balls, all of them coming in the first three quarters, en route to a team-high 21 points as the Lions beat South Point, 94-73, at Boyd County Middle School. Each team sank 12 3-pointers.

The Lions (20-10) reached 20 wins for the first time since 1999-2000.

Brandon Barnes led the Pointers (9-13) with 27 points. Kurt Adams added 18. Each hit five 3-pointers.

Brandon Taylor and Austin Hunt had 18 points apiece for Boyd County. Todd Stacy contributed 13 on the strength of three 3-pointers.

The game was called with 2:01 left after Brock Damron, a Boyd County freshman, broke his ankle badly when he landed awkwardly under the basket. That injury, coupled with bad weather, forced the game to end early.
