BHS boys want to take advantage of extra rest

Bellefontaine Chiefs

The harsh winter weather earlier this week cost the area’s prep basketball teams some valuable practice time, but Bellefontaine coach Henry Stolly found a silver lining in the time off.

“Perhaps the extra few days off the court provided our team the mental rest we need to embark on a busy January schedule,” said Stolly. “The players should be well-rested, healthy and anxious to bounce back after a disappointing loss to Tecumseh.”

Bellefontaine is coming off its worst outing of the season, a 61-44 defeat to the Arrows last Friday that snapped the Chiefs’ six-game winning streak.

The Chiefs will only get a couple of practices in before Friday’s trip to Stebbins. However, Stolly feels like the break came at the right time.

“We are looking at the weather layoff as a positive thing for our team and an opportunity to re-focus on what we need to do in our final first-round CBC matchup with Stebbins,” said the Chieftain head coach.
