CRESTVIEW — Christmas came early for the Crestview boys basketball team on Thursday.

Yes, the Bulldogs played their last game for a week and school was getting out for the Christmas break on Friday.

But a team that has struggled at times in the first three weeks of the season needed more than a break in the game schedule or days off from school.

Crestview needed a win and against Bay and that’s just what the Bulldogs got as they took down the Tornadoes 54-42.

“It was a nice win before the break,” Crestview coach Ken Meisner said. “That’s one of the comments we made before we stepped on the floor tonight was this was our final tune up before the second half of the season.

“We wanted to come to be respectable and competitive and the kids did that.”

The first half was close as both teams used a variation of a full-court zone press defense in an attempt to score points in transition.
