The Bradshaw Mountain basketball boys took the floor Friday night charged up after watching their sister Bears fight Flagstaff for an overtime win.

Opening the season with two tough losses on the week - 71-55 at Prescott the previous night after leading most of the game, and 89-74 to Glendale Raymond S. Kellis two days before that - the Bears were ripe for victory. And they narrowly avoided their own OT with a 33-31 win at their home opener.

Bradshaw got out to a 14-9 lead, then saw a 2-minute scoring drought before Lucas Herman's 3-point play (lay-up and free throw) made it 17-9.

The Bears led 19-12 at the half, but fell behind 27-24 at the end of three quarters.

Back-to-back 3-point shots from seniors Anthony Biasetti and Tyler Inglehart put Bradshaw up 30-27 in the fourth. But Flagstaff kept it close, twice coming within a point before, with five seconds to play, Herman ended the night's scoring with a free throw.

Despite the low-scoring affair, Bradshaw head coach Doug Beilfuss was happy to get the season's first win under their belts.

The Bears now are on the road for two weeks, with yesterday's game in Flagstaff after the Tribune's press time, and a long trip to Yuma for a weekend tournament, followed by games in Sedona (Dec. 10) and Chino Valley (Dec. 13).
