Fluco boys’ basketball team unbeaten


High school sports have returned in the state of Virginia. An abbreviated Fluco basketball schedule kicked off on Dec. 23 when the Fluco boys’ team under Coach Heath Bralley traveled to Goochland.

The Flucos rained three pointers down making 13 of 24 attempts from beyond the arch. Understandably, Goochland was unable to withstand the show of accuracy and the Flucos won easily 89-64. Junior Maurice D’Alessandro led the way, scoring 27, including four three-pointers. Junior Kobe Edmonds also had a good game, scoring 19 with three three-point baskets. Senior John Boy Rittenhouse also contributed 19 points and he made 5 three-point shots. Seniors Daniel Campbell and Xavier Copeland pulled down seven and six rebounds respectively and Edmonds led in assists with four.

Coach Bralley commented that his teams’ shooting was the best he had seen in a long time and that his squad moved the ball around very well. On Dec. 29, the Fluco boys’ team was on the road again, this time at Louisa County High School. In this contest, the Flucos put up 24 points in the final quarter to pull away to a 22-point win, 75-53.

Edmonds led the scoring for the Flucos with 20 points, including four threes. D’Alessandro followed with 17 including three from long range. Rittenhouse was again in double figures with 12 points. The Fluco’s leading rebounder was sophomore Jaden Ferguson with eight. The assists were evenly distributed as D’Alessandro, Rittenhouse and Ferguson each had three. On Jan. 4, the Flucos topped Orange to stay unbeaten. The score was 74-68.

On Jan. 7 they will host Staunton. On Jan. 8 they will take on Orange County again, but on the road. On Jan.12, the Flucos return home to take on Charlottesville. On Jan. 14 and 15 they travel to Goochland and Monticello High. Games are being played under strict COVID-19 protocols dictated by the Virginia High School League (VHSL) which are based on directives from the governor’s office. Accordingly, a very limited number of spectators are allowed into the gym and masks are required. Abbreviated schedules are also in place for girls’ basketball, indoor track and field, wrestling and swim and dive.
