Barons storm back to beat Nottoway

SoVaNow.com / January 23, 2013
The Bluestone Baron varsity boys broke loose for 25 points in the fourth quarter to take a 65-60 win over the Nottoway Cougars in James River District action last Tuesday at Nottoway.

The victory was one of the most gratifying of the season as the Barons rallied from a 44-40 deficit to open the final quarter. With the win, Bluestone improved to 4-2 in the James River and 6-6 overall.

Bluestone’s other scheduled district game last week, against Goochland, was postponed due to bad weather.

Against Nottoway, the Barons got a huge boost from Chris Watson, who drained four three-pointers in the game to lead the Bluestone offensive attack with 16 points. A fellow junior, Damien Winbush, also had a big night for Bluestone as he scored 13 points. Also topping double figures was senior Marcus Tucker with 11 points. Tucker narrowly missed a double-double as he also hauled in nine rebounds to lead the Barons in that department.

Also getting on the scoreboard for Bluestone were Devin Roberts and Ovon Bullock with eight points apiece, Chris Watson with six and Darius Baskerville with three.

The Barons needed contributions from across the lineup as Nottoway came out on fire and battled with their guests the entire night. The Cougars jumped out to a 21-14 lead in the first quarter and fought the Barons to a near-standstill in the second, losing the quarter by a 13-12 tally, to take the lead at halftime, 33-27.

Bluestone chipped away at the margin during a back-and-forth third quarter that saw the Barons outscore their hosts 13-11. But Bluestone saved the best for last, stepping up for 25 points in the fourth period to pull out in front after being down most of the way.

The Barons managed to take the lead despite a so-so night at the free throw line. Bluestone went 7 for 15 at the stripe for the game.

Following Friday night’s blank-out due to snow, the Barons were set to return to action last night (Tuesday) at home against Cumberland. The Barons will travel to Amelia on Friday as they look to stay in the thick of the James River District race.
