Cave Spring overcame a 10-point deficit in the second quarter by going on an 18-0 run as the Knights defeated Radford in non-district boys basketball at Cave Spring.

The Knights trailed 24-20 in the final stages of the first half before scoring the last six points, including a long-range bomb from behind the arc at the buzzer by senior Ryan Gladfelter that gave Cave Spring the lead.

Cave Spring carried the momentum into the second half by scoring the first 12 points of the third, and Radford never recovered. The Bobcats got to within seven points midway through the final frame, but the Knights hit free throws down the stretch to secure the win.

Amin Abuhawwas led Cave Spring with 21 points, while Gladfelter tallied 11.
