Bulldogs buzz by Yellow Jackets
Morristown has had some great success in boys hoops the last few years … but Friday night was not one of those. For a second straight year, the Yellow Jackets dropped a game to Batesville by a difference of more than 35 points. Result from Shelby County this year was 62-22.
The Bulldogs blanked MHS through the first eight minutes, going into the second quarter with a 17-0 lead. The Jackets then had their best offensive period of the night (10 pts.) but unfortunately for them, the Dogs did as well with a 27-spot. At the half, it was already 44-10 and a running clock soon followed.
Sophomore Cade Kaiser led seven Dogs in the scorebook with 16 tallies; Gus Prickel and Cole Pride each contributed a dozen. Sam Johnson put in 9, Brayden Maple 6, Conner Drake 4 and Jack Grunkemeyer 3. Johnson’s points all came from beyond the arc, with Prickel and Pride popping two long balls each. BHS was a perfect 7-of-7 from the foul line. Kaiser added 5 steals and Pride 5 rebounds.
BHS (15-6) has its home finale Thursday night against Shelbyville, seeking a seventh straight win.
