BHS BBB…Another game – another slow start for Brookings boys’ basketball.
The Bobcats shot 21 percent from the floor in the first half, and Yankton went on to a 59-49 ESD Conference boys’ basketball win Tuesday night.
The Bucks led 25-13 at halftime.
Brookings coach Travis Engebretson says Brookings could have led, had some shots gone down. 97621 :14 “of our shots”.
Engebretson says Brookings is capable of being a good team. 97622 :15 “have control over”.
Yankton put four players in double figures – Brady Hale and Reid Sawatzke each had 15 points, J-J Hejna had 11 points and 12 rebounds, and Ryan Olson scored ten.
Tyler Nagy led Brookings with 16 points – Mikey Daniel and Carter Gordon each had seven rebounds.
District 2AA is wide open – with games remaining against Washington, Lincoln and Harrisburg – the major player in the district may be Brookings: 97623 :28 “and play well”.
Brookings gets a week off before visiting Sioux Falls Washington:
