The Brady boys basketball team is sitting at a 0.25

win percentage going into the sub-district season. Subdistricts

are just around the corner and the boys are

busy preparing for the challenge that lies ahead.

On Thursday, Feb. 2, Brady hosted the Sandhills Valley

Mavericks in a non-conference match-up. The Eagles

got off to a bit of a slow start, scoring only 8 points in

the first quarter to the Mavericks’ 14.

However, the Eagles began to find their groove in the

second quarter, doubling the points they allowed their

opponent, as they racked up 12 to Sandhills Valley’s 6 to

even the score at 20 going into the halftime locker room.

During the second half of play, the Eagles just kept

falling a little short, scoring 13 points each of the last two

quarters to the Mavericks 16 points each quarter. When

the final buzzer sounded it signaled a disappointing

loss for the Eagles, 46-52.

On Friday, the boys traveled to Arapahoe for another

hard-fought battle with the Warriors. The Eagles

ultimately lost that fight, once again, in a very close

scoring game, 58-55.

They will face off against Loomis in a home game on

Feb. 11, with tip-off set for 7:00 pm. Then, on Feb. 17,

they will go up against Sandhills-Thedford on the road,

with game time at 6:00 pm.

At the time of this writing, Rylie Shirk is leading the

Eagles with an average of 13.2 points per game. Blake

Lusk has an average field goal percentage of 40 and

an average of 10.7 rebounds per game. Dillon Miller is

averaging 3.3 assists per game, Shirk has 2.2 steals per

game, and Lusk has 1.0 blocks per game.
