BUFORD - Early in the third quarter Friday, Buford senior Blanche Alverson stopped playing nice. The Auburn signee decided to take control for the top-ranked Lady Wolves. She scored 11 of her season-high 29 points in the third quarter and added seven rebounds to pace Buford in a 77-41 win against Callaway in the first round of the Class AA state playoffs.
All year long, Gainesville's boys basketball team has taken pride in playing as a team. And in the first round of the state playoffs against Eastside, the Red Elephants proved that playing as a team is the best thing they can do.
