MONROE — Bluffton guard Kevin Moser knocked down a triple and Josh Moriarity put back a miss to give Bluffton five points.
That was it for the first half.
The Tigers struggled mightily against the AC 2-3 zone and faced an 18-5 halftime deficit. The Jets would hold on to the conference win, 42-28.
With 13 seeds, including three No. 1 spots, Bellmont's battle-hardened Braves have a real shot at the Northeast Hoosier Conference Wrestling Tournament crown Saturday at the BHS gym. Of course, they'll have to fight off defending tourney champ Carroll, the dual meet 2014 winner, and East Noble, which finished second last year with six titles. Four of those winners return.
"It's a three-team race," said Bellmont coach Brent Faurote, who is taking a team into a conference tourney for the 26th time.
