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.
