ARGOS â€” Bremen boys basketball coach Kyle Hanyzewski was itching to see his new-look Lions play.
You could see why during Wednesdayâ€™s season opener.
With stifling defense, Bremen jumped out to an early 18-point lead and cruised to a 44-29 victory over Argos.
â€śI came here saying we wanted to be 1-0, and we are,â€ť Hanyzewski said. â€śAs a coach and perfectionist Iâ€™m going to critique some things I didnâ€™t like, but the bottom line is 1-0.â€ť
Bremenâ€™s pressure on the ball forced 24 turnovers, eight during the first quarter, which set the tone for the entire game.
SOUTH BEND â€” John Glenn racked up 25 turnovers, missed 19 free throws, surrendered 16 unanswered points in the first frame â€” and still won.
Of course, South Bend Clay clanked 15 charity tries, struggled to a 36 percent mark from the field against Glennâ€™s 2-3 zone and man defenses, and suffered persistent foul trouble itself.
In the season debut for both teams that looked every bit of it, the Falcons nailed all seven of their third-quarter offerings from the field, including four from downtown, to escape with a 61-54 boys basketball victory over the host Colonials Wednesday.
