Dogs off to best start in years, at 8-2, they face Wall tonight

Brady basketball coach Gary Jones is off to the best start in many years and through last Saturday, the Bulldogs are 8-2. This past Saturday the Dogs played a “round robin” format with the team with the best record taking the championship. Jim Ned, the only team to hand Brady a loss this year, was also at the tournament. “We were in Goldthwaite, and we both had 3-0 records. They beat us, 58-48, on their home floor, so we took second place,” the coach said. The Bulldogs fell to Jim Ned the previous week. “I am very proud of these young men. We have competed every game that we’ve played (10 games within a span of 12 days),” he said. Tyler Campbell paced the Brady team by scoring 50 points during the four games. In the first game at Goldthwaite, the Dogs took care of San Saba, 56-34. It was 22-17 at halftime, but a big third quarter (17-8) helped the team to cruise to the victory. Score by quarters: Brady 11 11 17 17’56 San Saba 6 11 8 9’34 Brady scorers: Tyler Campbell 18, Jon Langseth 11, Zach Jones 8, Mackenzie Hirt 5, Garrison Jones 4, Brantley King 4, Larat Lawrence 2, Prennis Williams 2, Ruben Resendez 2. *** In the second game against Zephyr, the Dogs had another easy contest, taking their opponent, 65-26.
