Pinson Valley goes back-to-back in area championship

By Gary Lloyd

CENTER POINT — The Indians have done it again.

For the second consecutive year, Pinson Valley won a down-to-the-wire game over host Center Point to win the Class 5A, Area 11 championship.

Center Point sank a two-point shot with seconds remaining to force overtime, but Pinson Valley came away with a 57-54 victory.

Tournament MVP Donevan Waldrop scored 18 points and handed out five assists to lead Pinson Valley (18-10). Senior guard Zach Jackson, named to the all-tournament team, scored 14 points. Senior forward Kerry Griffith scored 12 points and grabbed nine rebounds.

Pinson Valley will host Ramsay in a sub-regional game Friday at Mike Dutton Gymnasium. Ramsay ousted Pinson Valley in this game last season.
