Hendley Looking For A Championship

Todd Hendley and his Lee County Senior teammates are looking to win a state championship this weekend as Lee County faces Charlotte Vance this weekend in the 4-A state finals in Chapel Hill. DeaconSports spoke with Hendley about Lee County's road to the championship game as well this weekend's game.

Last week was an amazing week for Wake Forest signee Todd Hendley – and he'll be the first to tell you that. "It was a great week," Hendley told DeaconSports this week. "We knew it was going to be a big week having to play Jack Britt and then Rocky Mount, and [Lee County's] Coach Peace prepared us well," Hendley said.

"[Saturday,] we were watching our girls play and my dad brought his portable TV and after seeing Wake win [against N.C. State,] I was real pumped up," Hendley said. "That game against Rocky Mount, we were on such a high. It was amazing." Hendley played an amazing game himself, scoring 20 and bringing down 12 boards. And, what's more amazing – with the win, Hendley and Lee County have made it all the way to the 4-A finals.

And Saturday night, Lee County will continue to do what they have done all season long. "We're going to do the same things we've focused on all year," Hendley noted. "We're a defensive minded team. We're not going to change our gameplan, we're just going to do the things we do and hopefully get the win"

Hendley, who averaged 15 points and seven rebounds this season, will hit the floor with his Lee County teammates to play in the state championship at 7:30 pm at the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill.

DeaconSports will be in Chapel Hill Saturday night for photos and a story of Hendley's quest for a championship.
