After a disappointing loss at Effingham County last week, the Bradwell Tigers’ boys basketball team rebounded in an away game against Glynn Academy. The Tigers eked out a 52-48 win on the road Friday night in Brunswick.
It was a hard-fought game for the Tiger boys. Coach Rhett Hellgren said the Red Terrors tried to keep his team off balance by constantly changing their defense and, at first, his squad didn’t play very well.
“But good teams win even when they don’t play their best ball,” he said, adding the Tigers won because they put up a strong defensive front.
“We came out in the second half and played much better defense, and it started with Jamorris (Hill) and Tevin (Womack),” Hellgren said.
He added that the entire squad played a role in overtaking the Red Terrors, but Hill and Womack held back Glynn Academy’s two power shooters, and that’s what made a difference in the point spread.
The coach added that Reasha Stokes ignited BI’s effort with a big late shot, and Hubert Anderson and Kendrick Harris-Bennet played well despite returning from a week off due to illnesses. Hellgren pointed out that Darrell Hawkins had some valuable minutes for the team coming off the bench.
Tigers Hill, Stokes, Malcolm Dingle and Harris-Bennett hit the double digits with 15, 12, 11 and 10 points, respectively. Anderson chipped in four points.
The win gives the Tiger boys a 6-2 record in Region 3-AAAAA. The boys are 10-7 overall. The Tigers will travel Tuesday to Waycross to play Ware County. The girls’ game tips off at 6 p.m.
