Bowie boys lose 70-60 shorthanded on road

Published

on

The Bowie Jackrabbits lost a close game at 4A Krum on Tuesday right before the holiday break.
The Bobcats won 70-60 against a Jackrabbit team that was without some players.
The big loss for Bowie was starting center Riley Blackburn, who was out with an injury. With Krum coming in with a size advantage at most positions, the Jackrabbits missing their tallest player meant the whole team had to adjust.
“Losing our big guy hurt us,” Coach Andy Atkins said. “So we had some guys who had to play out of position a bit. Guard guys they aren’t used to having to guard.”
Krum tried to use that size advantage by trying to bully its way to close shots at the rim, not taking many perimeter shots.
Bowie battled well to keep pace, making three 3-pointers in the first quarter as the team trailed only 18-16.
It was more of the same in the second quarter as well. Both teams scored at a good clip, with the Jackrabbits making enough shots to hang around, but still trailing 39-34 at halftime.
The offensive pace settled down a little bit and less shots went in for Bowie.
The team still competed well with the Bobcats, but the lead grew a little bit 52-47 heading into the fourth quarter.
All 13 of the Jackrabbits points came from Brody Armstrong and Logan Hutson in the quarter. It was not enough to comeback against Krum as the team made its only two 3-pointers of the game as the lead grew to double-digits at the end.
The Bobcats won 70-60.

Published

on

Devin Stewart scored 22 points for Saint Jo and helped the Panthers beat Bellevue on Friday night.

The Saint Jo Panthers were able to bounce back and beat Bellevue on Friday night in Bowie to earn the third seed in district play.
The Panthers won 69-51 against a hot Eagles team coming into the game.
Bellevue had won the last four district games heading into the game, including a dominant win against Saint Jo just the previous week.
The Eagles comeback win against second seed Forestburg earlier in the week clutched at least a playoff spot, with a play-in game against the Panthers for the third seed.
The first quarter was competitive as Bellevue led 15-12 as the Eagles had five different players score at least one point.
The Panthers answered back in the second quarter, scoring 22 points as the team got a big lift from Devin Stewart who scored nine points during that period.
Bellevue kept up, scoring 16 points even as it fell behind a little bit.
Saint Jo led 35-31 at halftime.
The Panthers defense stepped up in the third quarter, limiting the Eagles to only one basket and some free throw attempts as Bellevue scored seven points.
Saint Jo got a big boost from Barrett Johnson, who scored 10 of his team’s 14 points as the Panthers lead extended.
Saint Jo led 49-38 heading into the final period.
While the Eagles scored a bit better in the fourth quarter, scoring 13 points, it was not enough to keep up with the Panthers. Saint Jo went 12-16 from the free throw line in the final period alone, which helped the team score 20 points and pull further ahead.
The Panthers won 69-51.
