The Bronchos took care of the Eagles on the Brentwood court.
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.” See more photos at Affton Patch Facebook. 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…

Our weekly South County sports roundup touches both basketball and wrestling.
The Rockwood Summit boys basketball team hoped to ride the emotion and momentum of a last-second win in the semifinals of the Lindbergh Tournament to a tourney title. It was not meant to be as the Falcons lost in the championship game to O'Fallon 58-52. The tournament was still an encouraging one for the Falcons who defeated the host Flyers in the first round 57-37 and then had a memorable win over Springfield Hillcrest 44-43 in the semifinals. Jory Woodson hit a shot at the buzzer in the semifinals and had an outstanding tournament overall. Woodson had 21 points in the opener, 13 in the semifinals and 19 in the championship game. Lindbergh came back after the opening round loss to defeat Jackson twice and capture the consolation …

The Southside Classic and other tournaments opened the 2011-12 season for several area boys and girls basketball teams.
The beginning of high school basketball season usually means tournament action and that was the case for many of the South County-area boys and girls teams last week with more tournaments scheduled for this week. The Southside Classic has been an annual start for several schools and action was held last week at Mehlville High School for the boys and Affton High School for the girls. The Bayless boys advanced to the championship game in the boys tournament before falling in the finals to St. Louis University High 68-41. The Bronchos got off to a rocky start in their first round game against DuBourg as they trailed 29-16 at the half. But they rebounded to outscore the Cavaliers 31-12 in the second half in a 47-41 win. Edin Mehmedovic had 16 …

Mistake prone first half proves too much to overcome, as Bronchos lose big to SLUH.
MEHLVILLE – Mama said there’d be days like this. And unfortunately for the Bayless High boys basketball team, one of those days came in the Southside Classic championship game, Friday night against SLUH, when the Bronchos couldn’t do hardly anything right, and lost the game 68-41. “I tell you, some days you’re the windshield, and some days you’re the bug,” Bayless head basketball coach Pat Triplett said. “Today, we were that bug, and we got smashed.” Boy did they ever. Bayless, the tournament’s No. 1 seed after winning the event for the first time ever last year, had one of its worst performances ever, in what proved to be a 27-point loss to the Jr. Billikens. The Bronchos shot poorly, and passed poorly, and had nearly everything go wrong …
