Bruins out-last Stars in Sagamore Conference opener Friday night, 63-56

If you ask any coach in the Sagamore Conference this season, they will tell you how competitive the boys' basketball season will be between the eight conference teams.

If Friday night's match-up between Tri-West and Western Boone is any indication, it is going to be a good one for the fans.

The Bruins out-scored the Stars 13-3 in the final 4:02 and topped the Stars 63-56 in a back-and-forth game.

"The difference was that we haven't been in a position where we have had to play with a lead late," Western Boone head coach Scott McClelland said. "Learning is a process. We took a couple of rushed shots and turned the ball over a couple of times. That is just a learning process of how to play with a lead. For three and a half quarters we played with arguably one of the top two teams in our conference. We were right there with a chance to win."

Western Boone lead 53-50 with 4:02 left after a basket by Logan Wethington.

A bucket by Tri-West's Brant Gadbury cut the lead to one, and after a Western Boone turnover, Tri-West's Trevor Waite hit his fourth 3-pointer of the game to give Tri-West the 55-53 lead.

He was also fouled on the rebound and hit 1-of-2 free throws to push the lead to three.
