Brownsburg blowout Bronchos

BROWNSBURG — From the opening tip, the Brownsburg boys’ basketball team was ready to play.

Using effective defense that led to easy shots, Brownsburg beat Hoosier Crossroads Conference opponent Lafayette Jeff 58-35 for its fifth straight win and to improve its record to 9-9.

The Bulldogs held the Bronchos without a field goal for nearly the first 13 minutes of the game as Lafayette Jeff also missed their first 13 field goal attempts.

“There was really nothing that was too earth shattering that we did,” Brownsburg coach Ronald Nored said. “I thought we were just solid. Our guys didn’t gamble. They didn’t try and get in the passing lanes and try and get steals.”

Brownsburg led 30-8 at the half. The eight points at the half was a season-low allowed for the Bulldogs as they played some of its best, if not the best defense of the season.

“If we have, it’s been awhile since we’ve played defense like that,” Nored said. “We feel like we have a pretty good defensive scheme and we just have to go out and play it.”

Brownsburg led 14-2 after the first quarter, including eight from sophomore Kenneth Walton’s game-high 15 points. Lafayette Jeff’s two points came from two separate trips to the free-throw line.

The Bulldogs built a 22-2 lead after senior Xavier Ringo opened the second quarter with eight straight points. All of his points were scored on fastbreak layups where he was fouled on each of the layups. He converted the first two and-one opportunities that came off of steals before missing the final free throw.

“He was playing hard and playing aggressive defensively,” Nored said. “He got his hand on a couple basketballs and was able to get out and finish. I thought that he did a great job finishing at the rim.”
