Bearden’s boys rule in Upper East Tennessee; girls fall at home

Despite back-to-back games Saturday in Upper East Tennessee, Bearden's boys seemed to barely break a sweat to open their 2010-11 varsity basketball season last week.

“We didn't play great, we played decent,” BHS head coach Mark Blevins said about one-sided wins versus Morristown East, Chuckey-Doak and Daniel Boone.

Those Bulldogs wins highlighting the first week started at Morristown East, 69-48, Tuesday, Nov. 16, led by Rico White's 15 points followed by Dion Fair with 11.

DeQuan Wright scored 10 and Will Winton added nine points.

Food Country Thanksgiving Invitational at Johnson County High School was the site of BHS’s back-to-back games Nov. 20.

Even holding out four starters against Chuckey-Doak in the first game, Bearden still crushed CDHS 92-28.

Jordan Wall, 6-foot-3 sophomore forward, led BHS with 16 points followed by Winton's 15. Freshman Victor Fair and Davon Saletovic each scored 12, with Wright adding 10 plus Spencer Peake and Austin Weida tossing in eight each.

Daniel Boone, Bearden's sub-state victim last season with four starters returning, presented a tougher challenge immediately after the rout of Chuckey-Doak.

But led by White and Winton, with 18 and 16 points respectively, BHS pulled away from a four-point halftime lead to win 88-64.

“For the week, Will Winton played well,” Blevins said, adding the 6-foot-4 senior forward had four steals versus CDHS then led Bearden in defensive rebounds against Boone with seven.

Ty Greene scored 12, while Dion Fair and Peake each added 11 points and Drew Standifer nine.
