Forcing the pace with an attacking defense that resulted in numerous Knights’ turnovers, Bellefontaine ran away with a 63-38 victory in a Central Buckeye Conference boys crossover game.

The Chiefs, who were playing for the first time in 10 days, are now 1-1 on the season.

“It seemed like it had been a month since we last played,” said BHS head coach Henry Stolly. “Our boys were excited to get back on the floor. We got a bit sloppy at times in the second half, but overall, I really liked the effort tonight.”

Bellefontaine pressured Greenon into 25 turnovers, with many of those turning into easy points in transition.

“We were active in the passing lanes and active off the ball as well,” said Stolly. “Our kids were unselfish and did a good job looking for each other.”
