Glenn gets off to shaky start but survives at Clay

November 26, 2010

SOUTH BEND — John Glenn racked up 25 turnovers, missed 19 free throws, surrendered 16 unanswered points in the first frame — and still won.
Of course, South Bend Clay clanked 15 charity tries, struggled to a 36 percent mark from the field against Glenn’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.
“We just survived,” Glenn head coach Travis Hannah said. “I’m proud of our kids. We got up 7-1 and then gave up a 16-0 run. I called a timeout and chewed on them. They very easily could have folded, but they responded. It’s one of those games that you find a way to win.”
