TROY — The Troy Christian girls basketball team won its 10th straight game, setting up a showdown for a share of the Metro Buckeye Conference title on Thursday after a 49-16 win over Miami Valley Monday at home.
The Eagles (18-2, 10-1 MBC) held Miami Valley to only five points in each of the first three quarters defensively to build a 31-15 lead and then put the game away by outscoring the Rams 18-1 in the fourth.
Troy Christian hosts Legacy Christian — the MBC leader at 11-0 and a 42-20 winner in the team’s first meeting back on Jan. 8, the last time the Eagles lost — Thursday night.
