But Hopper and Peay combined to score the first six points of the fourth quarter to push the Allen lead to 37-25 with 6:30 remaining.
Vanoss used two 3-pointers by Blake Cooper and another trey from Dalen Byrd to pull within 39-34 with 1:56 left, but the Wolves would get no closer.
Vanoss actually died by the 3-pointer. The Wolves hit eight of a whopping 36 attempts from beyond the arc and attempted just 12 shots from two-point range. The VHS double post threat of starter Dayton Phillips and reserve Ricky Hall were limited to a combined one point.
“I have a really good team and I have a really bad team, and I never know which one’s going to show up,” Vanoss head coach Jon Hurt said.
Christie and Cooper scored 11 points each to pace the Vanoss offense.
Allen owned a 43-33 rebounding edge, including 10 boards from post player Zane Erickson.
Roff 88, Calvin 40
The Tigers (5-2) bolted to a 19-5 lead to start the game and never really looked back.
Roff led 32-13 early in the second quarter before coasting to a 48-19 halftime advantage. Other notable Roff leads included 63-23 and 88-32 before the Bulldogs managed to score the final eight points.
Roff saw 12 players reach the scoring column and had eight players score at least seven points.
Mike Anderson scored 11 of his team-high 15 points in the first half for the Tigers. Dalton Madden also reached double figures with 11 points, while Zach Lewis was close behind with nine.
Rayce Stephens had eight fourth-quarter points for the Tigers, while Lonnie Peterson also scored eight.
Calvin (0-8) got a game-high 19 points from junior Anthony Harrison, who hit five 3-pointers. Blake Fulton added eight for the host Bulldogs.
Vanoss 47, Calvin 25
The Lady Wolves held Calvin to 1-of-9 shooting from the field in the first quarter to grab an early 12-5 advantage, but they couldn’t shake the Lady Bulldogs, who played VHS even in the second quarter to stay within 19-11 at halftime.
