Boys Varsity Basketball falls to Tipton 91 – 74

The Braves lost on the road at Tipton. After 10 games the Braves are 7-3 overall.2-1 TRC.

Coach Burrus Quotes: “We had our chances. We put up 43 points in the second half and lost by several. The first quarter really hurt our chances. We gave up 31 points. If we just hold them to 20 this is a totally different game. We had some kids really gut it out though. We had a lot of sickness. I liked how we kept fighting. Fuddy Kile scored 16 in the 2nd half. He hit 4 three point shots. Oakley Reeser played very well off the bench. He scored 8 and hit 2 three point shots. He also had 3 steals and 2 assists.Josiah Ball had 30, his average but he led us with 6 assists and 4 steals. AJ Kelly held Swan to 3 points in two quarters. We waited too long to have AJ guard him. Then, in the 4th we had to pressure because we were down too many and had to make things happen. AJ was sick and when asked he shut him down. Tipton is number 2 in 2A. They are really good but like I said, we had our chances.

Josiah Ball is already one point shy of 1000 points. His play for us has been incredible to be at this point. He has improved every season. He scored 20 points per game last year and has bumped that up to 30 points per game this year. I also want to credit everyone on our team who are unselfish players which allows Josiah to score at this high of a level. To score like this it takes a team. Friday night vs Peru Josiah Ball will join the 1000 point club. Make sure you are there to witness this history. Also, this Peru game is big! It would be great to have a big crowd for this showdown. The crowd at County was a major reason we were able to bring home the championship. Let’s protect our home court. See you Friday. “
