BHS splits weekend games with Wilkinson

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

“I’m disappointed to lose by 15, to a team who we definitely think we can compete much better with. In no way are we pleased with the effort we provided (Saturday night). On these types of stages, you have to bring your absolute best game.”

Senior Marquise Williams accounted for nearly half of his team’s total with 28 points while getting a double-double with 11 boards.

“Marquise is huge for us and that’s no secret. I believe he’s one of the best big men in the state,” said Owens.

“I felt I could’ve played better to help out the team,” added Williams.

Wilkinson County came out the gate strong building an early eight-point lead that carried them through the first quarter at 21-13, although the Braves twice came within three.

The Warriors built their first double-digit lead with a 3-pointer to start the second quarter and added a late six-point run from which Baldwin couldn’t recover.

Baldwin out-scored Wilkinson 32-30 in the second half, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the 17-point deficit from the intermission.

Senior Stetson Richardson had 10 points, while sophomore Damarious Mason added nine.
