A pair of key seniors on the Lord Botetourt state semifinal boys basketball team sign on to play ball at the next level Thursday in the high school library. Senior guard Dustin Hassell is headed to Roanoke College to play for Page Moir and the Maroons, while forward Ricky Southerland is headed to Lynchburg college. Coach Chad Conner says the payoff for all their hard work is to be able to move forward to play in college. He tells WSLS-10 Sports he'll be taking his team to see his former players compete next season. The Cavs finished 24-3, one game short of a state finals berth---falling 58-52 to eventual group 3A champion John Marshall in the state semifinals.
