Broadneck's intense pressure and zone traps never allowed visiting Severna Park to get in sync and the host Bruins shot 50 percent offensively to humble the Falcons, 56-33, in Anne Arundel County boys basketball last night.

The No. 8 Bruins, who made 23 of 46 shots from the field, improved to 5-0. The victory also featured their crisp passing and exceptional quickness.

Junior J.J. Hicks had a game-high 17 points for the Bruins and senior Clyde Gross added 16 points, 11 coming in a 14-7 first quarter that set the tempo.

Charles James had 10 points for the Bruins.

"This year we want to pick up the pace, play pressure defense and create offensive opportunities from our pressure," said coach Johnny Williams, whose Bruins forced 22 turnovers by the Falcons (4-2).

Severna Park played without Joe Fontenot, a 6-foot-8 fifth-year senior who injured an ankle in the Falcons' 52-50 overtime loss Friday at Annapolis.

The Falcons' offense was in such disarray that it did not have a double-digit quarter until the last, when it scored 15 points. It shot only 30 percent on 13 of 40 from the field.

Shane Dewind, who stayed in the game with the other Falcons starters despite the team being down by as many as 30 points in the final eight minutes, scored seven of his team-high 14 points in the last quarter.
