In just her junior season on the court, Bandys' Madi Story already knows where she wants to invest her basketball future.
Story, the defending Catawba Valley 2A girls basketball player of the year, has verbally committed to play for Appalachian State after her senior year with the Lady Trojans.

Roy Hibbert won a basketball game Tuesday night but lost $500.
In the waning minutes of a blowout victory, Hibbert told the final five Indiana Pacers left on the floor he'd pay them $100 each if they kept the Charlotte Bobcats from scoring 80 points.
Pay up, Roy.
"Yeah, I'm a man of my word," Hibbert said. "A Hibbert always pays his debts. ... I guess I have to go find an ATM."
