Bearden’s boys’ basketball team got yet another district win last night, as they beat Catholic 92-63.
This win, backed by junior Trent Stephney’s 23 points and junior Ques Glover’s 21, improved Bearden’s record to 23-1, and got them their 11th district win.
As usual, Glover and Stephney performed well.
“I think we did good,” said Stephney. “Coach Parrott told us to feed Shamarcus [Brown] and them a lot, cause Shamarcus had a miss-match sometimes.
“Me and Ques did good on the offensive side pushing the ball up, attacking the rim, and scoring.”
Although they didn’t get off to a strong start, tied at the end of the 1st 12-12, a second quarter run put the Bulldogs on top at the half, 42-22.
It has been common for Bearden this season to start of games slow, and it was Coach Parrott’s words that sparked the Bulldog’s run.
“He said to buckle down, play intense defense, and not get back cut, and to just give a better effort,” said junior Drew Pember.
Pember finished the game off with 15 points, and he believes that this win sent a message across the district.
“It sent a message out to the rest of the district that we’re one of the best teams,” said Pember. “Hopefully we can just keep going and blow everybody out.”
This win for Bearden (23-1, 11-0 District 4-AAA) was their second of the season over Catholic (16-3, 8-3) and they will continue district play this Friday at home against West (5-13, 4-7.)
The Bearden girls’ will tip-off at 6pm, and the boys will follow at 7:30pm
