The improbable, incredible ride will continue for the Roxboro Community School boys’ basketball team.

The 27th-seeded Bulldogs pulled off their third consecutive upset, this time downing No. 3 Northwest Halifax, 85-81 Saturday in the third round of the 1A state playoffs. The win snapped the Vikings’ (25-2) 18-game winning streak.

The Bulldogs will travel to North Central Athletic Conference champion Henderson Collegiate Tuesday for the regional semifinals. The Pride (29-2) held off Holmes, 71-69 in Saturday’s third-round game and will be looking for its 17th consecutive victory and third of the season against the Bulldogs. Henderson Collegiate defeated RCS, 83-71 in early December and cruised to a 108-71 victory in the rematch on Feb. 6.

RCS (15-14) is the lowest seeded team still in the state playoffs in any of the eight boys or girls brackets---but the Bulldogs are still alive and kicking.

They took a 37-35 halftime lead against the champions of the Tar Roanoke Conference and extended their advantage to 61-52 heading into the fourth quarter. RCS withstood a 29-point final frame from NW Halifax and knocked down 11-of-14 from the free throw line to seal the win.

Nasir Stokes paced the Bulldogs with 26 points and hit 8-of-9 from the free throw line. The junior drilled all four of his free throw attempts in the fourth quarter.

Dylan Jones poured in 19 points, while Jalen Bailey chipped in 17.

Bryson Pleasant added eight points, while Karson McKenzie came off the bench and scored seven points. J.R. Paylor rounded out the scoring with six points.

Danyus Daniels carried the Vikings with 33 points, 11 coming in the fourth quarter.
