The WVHS Boys Basketball team capture the 2016 Region 3-AAA title last night over Bradley Central 56-52 in Cookeville. The Mustangs scored the final 8 points of the game to erase a four point Bradley lead. The key to the win was an 18-6 3rd Quarter which helped the Mustangs overcome a nine point halftime deficit. The Mustangs were led by Seniors Kenny Bunton (20 points) and Region MVP Josh Jones (16 points – all in the 2nd half). Jones went 8-10 from the free throw line. Bunton, Jones, and Bryce Nunnelly were all selected to the All-Tournament team. The Mustangs host Lawrence Co. Monday night for a chance to advance to the TSSAA State Tournament. Game time is 7:00 p.m. Monday’s Sectional match-up will be broadcast on Talk 101.3 The Buzz FM.
