Jackrabbits lose at Burkburnett

Published

on

The Bowie Jackrabbits had their early season test at Burkburnett on Tuesday and fell short against the Bulldogs.
Burkburnett won 78-47 against the Jackrabbits in the first game back from the holidays.
The Bulldogs always provide Bowie a big early season test in one crucial aspect, breaking the press. Burkburnett traditionally features a fierce full-court press defense along with platoon style substitutions and a bench that tries to be just as energetic as the ones on the floor.
Along with a raucous student section right behind the opponent’s basket and it’s a tough road game in the best of circumstances, let alone one coming back from the holiday break.
The first quarter was low-scoring and competitive with Bowie trailing 11-8. The pace increased in the second quarter and while the Jackrabbit offense got going a bit more, it was the Bulldogs who exploded.
Burkburnett scored 28 points in the second quarter alone and led 39-22 at halftime.
Even in the second half Bowie could not slow down the Bulldogs as they scored 23 points in the third quarter to extend their lead even more.
With the game in hand, the fourth quarter was a more even affair which meant the Jackrabbits could not make up much of the deficit.
Burkburnett won 78-47.
Andrew Sandhoff led the team with 12 points while Brady Lawhorn was second with eight points.
Tucker Jones and Boston Farris each had seven to help the team.
