VISAA boys basketball: Eagles fall to Bishops in semifinal
FROM STAFF REPORTS
Eric Shaw scored 16 points and Aaron Alexander added 12 as Virginia Episcopal sprinted out to an early lead and held on to defeat Fredericksburg Christian School, 72-63, in a VISSA Division II semifinal at Virginia State University on Friday afternoon.
The Eagles shot 9-of-27 from the floor and 0-for-6 from beyond the arc in the first half as they struggled to break the Bishops’ 2-3 zone.
Fredericksburg Christian battled back. Led by Seth Allen, who scored 21 of his 25 points in the second half, the Eagles closed to within seven with under six minutes remaining. Virginia Episcopal did just enough in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter to stave off the Eagles’ furious comeback and seal a victory.
The Eagles finish the season with a 24-7 record.
