BKW basketball gets two more wins this week

BKW boys' basketball is at the top of the Western Athletic Conference standings with a 6-1 record (8-5 overall).

This week, the Bulldogs beat Sharon Springs, 74 to 34, on the road, and then followed that up with a 74-to-71 win at home against Middleburgh on Wednesday. 

Against Sharon Springs, sophomore Justin Houck scored 32 points and dished out eight assists. He made seven three-pointers.

On Wednesday, BKW was down by 10 points, then ahead by 12 points, only for Middleburgh to make the game close at the end. The Knights went up by one point, and then Eddie Slaver — he had five three-pointers in the game for BKW — hit a three to put the Bulldogs ahead by two points. BKW made some free throws down the stretch, and protected the three-point arch to win the game, Head Coach Tim Moseman said.

BKW got 27 points from freshman Zach Hilton and 14 points from Houck.
