Bethesda gets first win of season

BROWNSBURG — Bethesda’s basketball team emerged from its locker room on Tuesday night physically and mentally drained, but with smiles on their faces. For the first time this season, the Patriots came up on the winning end of the scoreboard. Bethesda (1-8) defeated Indiana Math and Science (3-9), 58-39.

Bethesda sophomore Jake Mlagan scored a game-high 23 points en route to victory and junior Andrew Warrick added 12 points.

Bethesda coach Jason Cook attributed the win to a total team effort.

“They had a great day in practice yesterday, and you could just tell their mindset was, ‘It doesn’t matter what happens, we’re gonna stick together, we’re gonna fight together,’ and they did,” he said.

Both teams struggled on the offensive end in the opening quarter, committing turnovers and struggling to find open looks, and Bethesda took a 6-5 lead into the second quarter. Mlagan scored four in the period.

Bethesda dominated offensively for much of the second quarter, going on an 11-0 run from the end of the first to more than halfway through the second. The Patriots led by as many as 10.

However, a 6-0 run by the visiting Tigers to close the first half cut Bethesda’s lead to 15-11 going into the locker room.

Mlagan scored a team-high six points in the half for Bethesda, while Warrick added four.

Bethesda outrebounded Indiana Math and Science 13-9 in the opening half.

The Patriots were nearly perfect on both sides of the ball in the third quarter. Bethesda regained its 10-point advantage in the opening minutes of the period and didn’t stop as they outscored the Tigers 23-3 in the quarter, allowing only one field goal in the period. Mlagan scored 13 points in the quarter and Bethesda took a commanding 38-14 lead.

Cook said the quarter was the best eight minutes his team has played all season.
