Brimley Scoring in Bunches, Off to Fast Start
BRIMLEY – First-year head coach Joel Moore has the Brimley boys basketball team off to an 11-0 start and ranked second in the first Associated Press Division 4 state poll.
After falling to conference rival Cedarville in a Class D regional final a year ago, the Bays are off and running and averaging more than 83 points per game.
“Whether we’re two, whether we’re 10, whether we’re one, whether we’re not in the rankings, we want to come in and get better every day,” Moore said. “When we’re running that transition offense, we need to get that pass little bit better, or just focusing on improving.”
Brimley has scored 80 or more points in eight of its 11 games this winter including 104 points in a 34-point win over Division 4 honorable mention Engadine back on Dec. 6.
“It feels like the work we put in during the summer is finally paying off,” Brimley senior Marcus Harris said. “I’m just like, not a big deal, I think we should be number one. I mean of course I have to think that, but I don’t know, it’s just a ranking. We all focus one game at a time.”
Brimley is back on its home court Tuesday against Cedarville.
