After suffering its first loss of the season Saturday, the Class 3A No. 6 Brownstown Central boys basketball team bounced back Monday, beating Class A No. 6 Orleans 74-66 in the third-place game of the Graber Post Buildings Classic.
Orleans was leading 10-6 in the first quarter when Brownstown’s Skylar Thompson hit two free throws and Hayden Stuckwisch came off the bench and scored four-straight points to give the Braves a 12-10 lead. The teams were knotted at 14 at the end of the quarter.
Trey Bradley gave the Bulldogs their final lead of the game, 15-14. The Braves broke a 17-all tie with Kory Kovert getting open on a backdoor cut for a layup and Chaz Schneider draining a shot, and they never trailed again.
