NICEVILLE — Crestview boys basketball coach Ken Meisner had a three-word challenge for the Bulldogs prior to Friday’s District 2-6A boys basketball game with Niceville.

“Band of brothers,” is what he wrote on the board in the locker room.

 “When you say band of brothers to a military unit or an athletic team that goes a long ways,” Meisner said. “These kids bought into that tonight. We win together and we lose together and if we fall we help each other up.

“You don’t leave anybody behind and that’s what we did tonight. Each possession meant something. We worked for it and that’s all we can ask.”

Friday night, the Bulldogs won together beating the Eagles 49-40.

In typical Crestview-Niceville fashion the two heated rivals squared off toe-to-toe trading baskets throughout the first quarter.

Freshman Mitch Morken sparked the Eagles early scoring Niceville’s first five points.
