Storm land third at Wethersfield
KEWANEE – With a 2-2 record going into Saturday night’s final game of the Wally Keller Invitational at Wethersfield High School, the Bureau Valley Storm needed a win to finish the week in third place. The Storm, who lost to Elmwood 77-63 on Friday, used a 19-6 third quarter to erase a two-point halftime deficit and take the 62-54 win over the Putnam County Panthers.
“We had an up-beat halftime, I will say that,” BV coach Jason Marquis said. “Our kids persevered. Putnam County is a great basketball team. It’s good to come out of this thing with a win. I’m just proud of our kids and the resiliency that they showed in the second half.
“Coming over here is about being better every night. To be blunt with you, we weren’t good Friday. We were bad. The good thing was that we got up this morning, got in the gym, knocked down some shots and came in tonight and played our hearts out.”
