BNL ends month of scrimmages
with sparkling 9-1 record after
55-26 triumph over Southport
By Justin Sokeland
Now that June basketball is officially finished, for those expecting Bedford North Lawrence to swoon when the real heat is cranked on when winter arrives, dwell on this fact:
The Stars played 10 scrimmage games during the last two weeks. They won nine of them, capped by the 55-26 smashing of Southport on Thursday evening.
Of course the Stars lost three Indiana All-Stars. Of course June games count about as much as a Russian vote total. Of course BNL will be everyone’s target for four years worth of revenge when the 2015-16 season starts.
Be warned. Be wary. Be worried. BNL will not buckle. Not if June is a precursor for November.
“We obviously have a lot of people that will come gunning for us,” BNL coach Jeff Allen said. “We’ll be under the gun to prove ourselves. But June really helped with our confidence.”
