Jan 28, 2016
GRUNDY, Va. — Ridgeview held a big advantage inside and shot its way to one outside.
Hunter Sutherland and Collin Hillman combined for 41 points to lead the Wolfpack to a 68-56 win over Grundy in non-conference play Thursday night.
While Sutherland (22 points, two 3-pointers) and Hillman (19 points and 5 treys) combined for 11 assists in the backcourt 6-foot-6 Will Ratliff and 6-5 teammate Isaac Rasnick controlled things around the basket.
The Wolfpack bigs combined for 29 rebounds as Ridgeview (11-6) started the game on a 16-4 run and never let its advantage slip below the final margin of 12 points.
"I thought coach (Brian) Moore had a good game-plan defensively, they mixed it up," Ridgeview coach David Robinette said. "But I thought Collin and Hunter hit some big shots. They shared the ball well and Will made some good passes, too."
Ratliff pulled down 18 boards, blocked eight shots and added 10 points. The big senior also had four assists.
Hillman hit three consecutive 3-pointers and Sutherland added a fourth in four straight possessions in the first half. Hillman's final trey helped the 'Pack build its biggest lead, 49-24, late in the third quarter.
Christian Jackson matched Sutherland for game-high honors with 22 points. Ethan Duty added 16 points for the Golden Wave (3-12).
"If we could have hit anything in the first quarter we might have changed the situation for the rest of the game," said Grundy coach
Brian Moore. "We were missing shots and only getting one shot. They were hitting threes and killing us on the boards."
Ridgeview held a 41-17 rebounding advantage.
