BROWNSTOWN

Fifteen points in the first half certainly wasn’t what Brownstown Central boys basketball fans were used to seeing.

In Friday’s Mid-Southern Conference game, though, Silver Creek’s zone frustrated the Braves, and they settled for 3-pointers and didn’t pound the ball inside.

The score was 15-all at halftime. But in the third quarter, Brownstown finally broke through and outscored Silver Creek 15-1 on its way to a 39-23 victory.

“It was frustrating offensively,” Braves coach Dave Benter said of the first half. “(The Dragons) had a lot to do with that. They cover spots. They are long and athletic ... We just got really impatient and settled for all 3s in the first half. When we did get the ball inside, I didn’t think our big guys were very effective with it.”

Following a halftime talk, the Braves got the ball going in transition and in the post.
