CHARLOTTESVILLE — About 400 boys basketball teams across the state had a head start to their seasons of up to 17 days on Eastern Hancock, courtesy of its state runner-up football squad.

The Royals, whose entire starting lineup Friday night against Northeastern consisted of footballers, didn’t look to be too rusty at the get-go.

But the final quarter was another story, as EH struggled mightily with its shooting and lost both a second-half lead of six points as well as the contest, 51-45.

EH missed 10 consecutive shots to begin the fourth — four from three-point range — and the Knights (3-1) capitalized both with key baskets and free throws.

“We’ve only been practicing for two weeks and maybe our legs went out on us,” Royals’ coach Aaron Spaulding said. “As the year goes on, we’ll have some shots that we’re going to hit. They just didn’t go down at the end of the game.”
