Cave Spring pulled away from a 28-25 halftime lead by outscoring Pulaski County 44-18 in the second half, as the Knights won in unexpectedly easy fashion, 72-43, Friday night at the Cave Spring gym.

Cave Spring improved to 10-9 (3-4 River Ridge) as River Ridge teams scramble to improve their seedings heading into tournament action. The Knights close their regular season with a pair of home games-Friday night (Feb. 3rd) against district-leader Christiansburg, followed by Tuesday night’s rematch with rival Hidden Valley.

Ryan Gladfelter led the Cave Spring scoring with 22 points, while Amin Abuhawwas added 16, all in the Knight’s second-half surge.
