The Breckenridge Buckaroos, ranked No. 8 in the TABC Boys basketball poll, continued their dominance and path to a district championship with a 44-24 victory of the Dublin Lions Tuesday night.
The Bucks’ (15-0, 4-0) defense played a dominate roll in the win by holding Dublin to just 24 points.
“I felt like our defensive intensity was really high and played really well holding them (Dublin) to 24 points,” said head coach Rob Ogle. “That is one of our defensive goals in each game is to hold our opponents to under 45 points and we were well under that.”
“I felt like our defensive pressure, both in our full-court and half-court presses did a really great job,” said Ogle.

“Offensively, we still have room for improvement. But as long as you are winning and still have room for improvement and eliminate the threat of peaking to soon is a good thing for us. I think that is something that we can strive to be better at as we go through the rest of district play.”
The Bucks started the game with 9-2 run and forced Dublin to used their second time-out of the game with 2:52 to play
