BERNE— A 59-52 wire to wire victory for Bellmont over South Adams on Tuesday night seemed to be a lot closer than the end result.
The Braves improved to 5-8 with the win, while the Stars dropped to 4-8 on the season.
"I was proud of the way we started the game, the way we continued to push and the way we finished the game," noted Bellmont coach John Baker. "I would have liked to have hit some more of our free throws to extend the lead but I can't fault the effort tonight."
