February 22, 2012

February 22, 2012

Braves stumble at Dwenger

February 22, 2012

    FORT WAYNE— Turnovers plagued the Bellmont Braves once more as they travelled to Bishop Dwenger to face a tough Saints squad and lost 71-43 on Tuesday night.
    The Braves, now 4-15, are still working out some of the kinks in the rotation. Seniors Payton Selking, Nick Fuelling, and Logan Smith seem to be out of coach John Baker's doghouse for the time being as they played significant minutes last night after a string of games with sparse minutes sparked by a lackluster effort at DeKalb last week.

    Cody Woodbury and Connor Detweiler will both be players that South Adams coach Andy Browns and the Stars will be happy to see graduate in May as they combined to score 37 of the 51 Winchester points including a game-winning hoop with 6.2 seconds to play by Detweiler, his only two-point basket of the game.
