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.
Add a new wrinkle in freshman Parker Zeser and senior Brian Fullenkamp rejoining the lineup after missing significant time with nagging injuries and the Braves rotation is anything but set, despite being in the twilight of the season.
"Bringing two guys back this late in the season, despite how glad we are that they are back, is hard," coach Baker stated. "It's hard to get a mix, rotation and a group that clicks together. They definitely bring things to the table and with one game left before sectional, we are glad to have them back."
Zeser and Fullenkamp played 26 minutes between the two of them and the Braves were tied after one quarter of play at 11-11.
