The Bucks proved to be too much for the Indians, who were coming off of a 64-60 loss to Cisco on Tuesday, as Breckenridge returned home with a 73-61 win.
“I felt like we had a great response to last Tuesday’s game and started off really well,” said Bucks head coach Rob Ogle. “We did a much better job on the defensive boards and in the physicality and mentality aspects of the game.”
“In the second half, I felt like we started out slow and they (Comanche) cut the lead to one,” said Ogle.
“But we were able to hit some big threes to extend the lead. I was proud of the way the guys battled in the fourth quarter and finished out the game really good.”
The score was tied at 9-9 with just over four minutes remaining in the first quarter before senior Caleb Spoon connected on a three-pointer to give the Bucks a 12-9 advantage.
