BLHS boys beat Turner

February 21, 2009

The Basehor-Linwood boys basketball team played a little slow, but defeated Turner 72-48, on Friday.

“We moved the ball well, but we did not have our legs on some of our shots,” BLHS coach Mike McBride said. “A lot of our shots were short. We just did not have our legs tonight.”

Still, Basehor-Linwood fought through the wobbly legs for a 24-point victory.

BLHS led 31- 22 at intermission. The game had a back-and-forth pace early on with a 10-8 score at the end of the first quarter. The two teams exchanged the lead early in the second quarter before BLHS went on a 14-6 run to gain some breathing room.

“They play a little bit of an unorthodox style and it takes a while to get through that,” McBride said. “They have played several teams close in the first half, but then you kind of figure it out.”

Basehor-Linwood started the third quarter on an 11-6 run to take a double-digit lead that included back-to-back baskets from Tanner Bowers. The Bobcats continued with mini runs the rest of the basketball game.

Four Bobcats players scored in double figures. Ryan Murphy led the team with 17 points. Chandler Schaake scored 15 points and Tanner Bowers finished with 14 points. Ryan Murphy finished with 11 points.

Basehor-Linwood will play at Perry-Lecompton on Tuesday.
