CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Anthony Eades scored 26 of his 34 points in the second half to lead defending champion Bluefield to a 70-54 win over Poca in the Class AA semifinals Friday.

Lykel Collier added 14 points for third-seeded Bluefield (24-2), which outscored Poca 24-10 in the third quarter.

Poca freshman Luke Frampton, who had 21 points in a quarterfinal win, made a 3-pointer and an ensuing free throw after he was fouled for his only points of the game to put the Dots ahead 30-24 early in the third quarter. But Frampton soon went to the bench with his fourth foul.

Bluefield then took over, scoring 10 straight points and the Beavers never trailed again.

Noah Frampton led Poca with 14 points. The second-seeded Dots (25-2) saw their 23-game winning streak snapped.
