Martinsburg holds on to beat Woodrow Wilson

CHARLESTON — Donte’ Grantham had 20 points and 17 rebounds, and Martinsburg nearly squandered a 17-point lead and held on to beat Woodrow Wilson 57-52 for the Class AAA championship Saturday night. Top-seeded Martinsburg (26-2) adds to titles it won in 2009 and 1994.

Second-seeded Woodrow Wilson (23-5) was trying for its 17th state championship and first since 2008.

Martinsburg never trailed. Woodrow Wilson trimmed the big deficit to 51-49 with 1:37 left but couldn’t take the lead.

Jalen Lewis added 13 points for Martinsburg.

Andrew Johnson led Woodrow Wilson with 19 points and freshman Nequan Carrington scored 12.

Tug Valley 58, Charleston Catholic 41

CHARLESTON (AP) — Aaron Muncy scored 21 points to lead Tug Valley to a 58-41 win over Charleston Catholic in the Class A championship game Saturday.

Austin Brewer added 15 points and Mikey Newsome scored 10 for top-seeded Tug Valley.

It was certain one of the teams would win a second consecutive state crown. Tug Valley took the Class AA title last year before dropping down to Class A. Charleston Catholic won in Class A a year ago.

But there was no repeat of 2012’s scoring drought, when Charleston Catholic beat St. Marys 40-34 in the lowest-ever scoring Class A championship game.

Tug Valley (25-3) took the lead for good midway through the second quarter and pulled away after that.

Nick George had 13 points and Garrett McCarty 10 for third-seeded Charleston Catholic (24-4). Thomas Baisden had 12 rebounds.

Charleston Catholic had reached the championship game for a record ninth time, including eight trips in the past nine years. Charleston Catholic won Class A titles in 2000, 2006, 2007, 1012.

Tug Valley also adds to the Class AA title it won in 1999.

A year ago Tug Valley led Bluefield 15-2 in the first quarter en route to the Class AA crown.

Saturday’s game got off to a similar frantic start. Tug Valley led 19-18 after the first quarter.

The Panthers led 32-26 at halftime and 43-31 entering the fourth.

During the regular season, Tug Valley beat Charleston Catholic 61-38.
