Batavia boys basketball shuts down Elgin
ELGIN – After allowing Elgin to nail five 3-pointers after the first quarter, Batavia’s boys basketball team got a little defensive during Friday’s Upstate Eight Conference River Division game against Elgin.
Contesting every shot and limiting Elgin to one shot most possessions, the Bulldogs shut the Maroons down for 7:33 in second quarter and went on a 14-0 run to take a 10-point lead en route to a 62-50 victory.
“That was a big goal defensively, to hold them to single-digit quarters,” said Mike Carlson, who had 14 points off the bench to boost the Bulldogs. “Our defense really led to our offense, shutting them down and getting easy shots.
