What a heart breaking loss…down by 7 to start the 4th quarter, they battled to take a 5 point lead with under 3 minutes left, only to have BR hit a 3 at the buzzer to tie it up. The boys really played hard and well and should be very proud of their effort. BR beat us by 16 the first time and was leading by 24 after 3 quarters. So the boys have shown tremendous improvement over the past month. Leading scorer was Brandon Sharpe with 20 points. J. C. Cole was next with 9 points, 4 rebounds and some stellar defense. Ben Montgomery played some great defense as well and had 7 points and 4 rebounds. Aidan McLaughlin also was tough on defense and had 6 points. Lincoln Barnhart had a couple of steals and hit a big 3 in the fourth. With 2 points each were Liam Trowbridge and Lukas Rivera, who also had 4 steals and 3 rebounds. Zach Fields chipped in with one point.
