    Brossart 56 Harrison County 50

    Brossart led 35-25 in the third, but Harrison scored 10 straight to tie it up. In the fourth, Harrison County had a one point lead on a couple of occasions, but didn't make the plays they needed to, to pull out the win. Both teams should be much improved next year. Not one of Brossart's better teams in recent years, but still solid on both ends of the floor. Well coached outfit and they play pretty smart basketball. Harrison County had way too many judgement mistakes and too many turnovers handling the ball...dribbling into trouble, trying to pass through defenders instead of over or around...really the kind of mistakes you wouldn' expect from varsity players. But must remember, the bulk of HC players are underclassmen...as are Brossarts.

    I thought the Breds were dead game in this one, and wouldn't go away. Brossart tried on several times to get separation but the BReds fought back. It wasn't until a late-game Brossart lead and the clock started to pressure the BReds that they made some bad decisions and FINALLY started missing some shots.
    Dillion Pulliam is a nice freshman - connected on three 3's tonight while scoring 17 points. Junior Caleb Ford pitched a big one also, putting up 19 points on the night to lead the Breds, 14 of which came in the pivitol second half.

    Brossart sophomore Justin Saunders is really coming into his own. Had a huge offensive night with 25 points to lead all scorers and a raft of rebounds and intangibles.
    The Mustangs defense kept the pressure on the BReds perimeter offensive players forcing many turnovers, many of which resulted in points on the Mustangs' side of the ledger.

    The Breds, who only show one senior on their roster, will improve dramatically next season and could be tough out later on in the post-season.

    Harrison County won the JV game 49-43, Tommy Vallandingham led the BReds with 12 points, connecting on one 3-pointer in each of the four quarters.
    Freshman Drew Burns led the Mustangs with 13 points while playing a solid game.

    Brossart heads to Richmond on Thursday to represent the 10th Region in the Touchstone Energy All "A" State Tournament where they will face West Carter at 9:30pm.
