Head coach Larry Mannon and his
Bobcats were taking on unbeaten James
Monroe in a rematch of last year's
semi-finals.

Early on Whitney King goes right
down the lane. She misses in close,
but gets her own rebound and puts it
back up and in. Radford led by 9
points at halftime.

In the second half Jill Weston
heated things up from the outside. She
buries a jumper from the corner - two
of her team high 16 points.

Ashley Hayes finished things off
with another jumper.

Radford advances to Saturday's
Group A state title game with the
61-to-49 win.

The Roanoke political strategist and
his business partner, Steve Jarding,
have signed a book deal with Simon and
Schuster.

Saunders wrote the lyrics to Mark
Warner's bluegrass campaign song, and
he and Jarding are known as the
architects of Warner's rural campaign
strategy.

Saunders came up with the title, "Foxes
in the Henhouse." The book and a
companion CD are due out in the spring
of 2006. (END VO) (END VO)
