BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WTVM) - The Valley High School boys basketball team has reached perfection! Valley (33-0) beat Charles Henderson, 54-50, on Saturday afternoon to claim the AHSAA 5A title.

The team’s perfect season seemed at risk at the half. The Rams trailed Charles Henderson 20-18 after the first two quarters.
