Bayless boys basketball lost to Brentwood at home last year, and came to the Eagles' home court on Friday with a plan to even the score. They did it convincingly.
“They beat us by one point at our place,” Bayless’ Munir Hirkic told STLtoday.com. “So we had a bit of a chip on our shoulder and we came out ready to play.”
STLtoday.com reported on the game at Brentwood, which the Bronchos won, 70-44.
Bayless (8-3) got 20 points from Hirkic and a team-high 26 from Patrick Triplett – 17 in the second half – as it improved to 2-0 in the conference. Brentwood (6-6, 0-1) was led by junior guard Will Erby, who scored 15.
The Bronchos didn’t waste any time taking control in the opening minutes. They hit their first three shots for a 6-0 lead, while Brentwood opened the game 0-for-7 from the floor.
Brentwood didn’t score until a short jumper from Marc Powells with 3:05 left in the quarter. The Eagles finished the quarter 2-for-10 from the field as Bayless led 14-4 after one.
Hirkic then stepped forward in the second, scoring 11 points, to help the Bronchos take a commanding 35-14 lead at halftime.
