Bulldogs too strong for Braves

Published: Tuesday, December 10, 2013 at 02:48 PM.

Almost three minutes ran off the clock before Crestview got a basket from Marcelle Moorer. But even when they weren’t scoring, the Bulldogs controlled the game with their defense.                                                                                                      

“We really played well defensively (Monday),” first-year Bulldog coach Greg Watson said. “(Defense is) the one thing we’ve been striving for in practice to get better on. They are a hard team to guard.

“They are quick and athletic and shoot the 3 a lot. Defensively, we really got after them. We did a good job of closing out on their shooters, and that allowed us to get the lead.”

Jamie Stanley came off the Walton bench, sparking the Braves in the second quarter. Stanley hit three 3-pointers and scored all of his 11 points in the second period as he tried to rally Walton.

Stanley’s 3-pointer with 4:52 left in the half cut Crestview's lead to 22-18.

Crestview’s Wesley St. Vil was fouled while shooting a 3-point basket and proceeded to hit all three free throws, pushing the Bulldog lead back to seven points.

Rasheen Blackmon hit a trey for the Braves, closing Crestview's lead to 25-21.
