Braham, one of the perennial powerhouses when it comes to boys basketball in the region, showed the Rush City boys basketball team last Thursday why the Bombers are deserving of that “powerhouse” moniker.
Braham came to Rush City and went home with a 79-56 win over the Tigers.
“One of the biggest stories of the night was Braham’s ability to connect from the three-point line,” said coach Jeremy Albright. “They made 10 threes and we made two.”
Albright lauded his team’s effort.
“Our kids battled hard,” he said. “I told them after the game that I could never be disappointed as long as they work hard.”
Tiger Garret Pearson had another strong performance.
“Garret Pearson led us again with another double-double, 33 points and 15 rebounds,” Albright said. “He, of course, is not the only one that played well—lots of players contributed.”
Albright added the team had its first “White Out the Gym” during the game.
Proceeds from the fundraiser went to Coaches Versus Cancer.
Individual stats from this game are posted on Scoreboard Plus on the ECM Post Review’s website.
