BHS gets close games against Perry

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Other Braves that stuck out on Tuesday were LaJavion Adams, the second leading scorer with nine points, three assists and two steals, as well as Stetson Richardson contributing a much-needed defensive effort for the team with five steals.

“Last night, I think was the first time that we played together well as a team,” Larkin said, “and I’m very pleased with Stetson.”

Coming away with their first win of the season, Larkin is pleased with the direction the team appears to be headed.

“Ultimately, to hang on and win in a close game, and to do so on the road is a huge confidence builder and something we needed at the time,” he said. “I’m really proud of the guys on how they responded and came back. I applaud them for having enough resilience and trust in their team to come out and play in a manner of which they did.”

Despite coming in with a perfect 2-0 region record, the Bravettes came out on the other end of a close game with Perry on Tuesday night.

The girls led much of the ball game, but came up short in a 50-48 loss.

“We got off to a pretty good start,” BHS girl’s head coach Randall Owens said. “This is still a pretty young team, so we’ve got to put teams away when we’re up like that, and we just didn’t do that [Tuesday] night.

“The game at Perry was a close game throughout. They are much improved from last season, so we knew they weren’t going to lie down and let us do what we wanted to do. They just made two more plays down the stretch than we did, thus giving them the two-point victory.”

Shemirika Manson led the team in scoring with a season-high 23 points and 10 rebounds; however, Owens believes many of the Bravettes contributed to the squad’s performance against the Lady Panthers.
