Broadneck uses Williams to make up for 25 errors

January 25, 1996|By Pat O'Malley | Pat O'Malley,SUN STAFF

A team can hardly expect to win by 20 points when it commits 25 turnovers, but No. 7 Broadneck accomplished the unlikely last night in Cape St. Claire.

The host Bruins (8-3) dealt No. 11 Glen Burnie (11-2) its first county league loss by 61-41.

Junior guard John Williams shackled the county public schools' leading scorer, Desmond Dailey, who came in averaging 20.9 points a game, holding him to 13 points.

Williams pestered the 6-foot-1 Dailey after he started fast with nine points in the first period. With Williams all over him, Dailey did not score in the second period, had only four in the second half and was five of 17 from the floor.

"It's hard to score when you've got a 6-5 player flying at you," said Broadneck coach Ken Kazmarek, whose Bruins also helped themselves by sinking 14 of 15 from the foul line.

"Dailey's inability to score his average contributed to the wide point spread and Johnny has to get the credit for that. If Dailey was hot, those 25 turnovers would have killed us."

Glen Burnie had 20 turnovers of its own, but more importantly for the Bruins, not only Dailey but the entire squad did not shoot well. The Gophers missed a golden opportunity to get back into the game when the Bruins had a miserable third period, but were only outscored 10-5.

"We could not have shot any worse and we were getting good shots," said Gophers coach Terry Bogle.

While Broadneck was shooting 43 percent (21-for-49) for the night, the Gophers shot 28 percent (16-for-57) and got few second shots. Not needing second shots, the Bruins built a 35-19 lead at the half by depriving the Gophers of second chances with 12 defensive boards to only three offensive ones by the visitors.

The Bruins outrebounded the Gophers, 33-26 for the game, with 25 defensive rebounds, as compared to 12 offensive rebounds by the losers.

"Let's face it, they controlled the game in all facets, the tempo and the boards," said Bogle.

Guard Mike Tasker, who scored a game-high 23 points to go with five rebounds and three assists, Williams and Renardo Walker did most of the damage in the first half that featured a 16-6 run in the second period.

Williams had seven of his 13 points and all five of his rebounds in the first half while Walker scored seven of his nine points in the second period and had four of his game-high nine rebounds.

Jamaine Young was a third Bruin in double digits with 10 points and seven rebounds.
