The Northrop Bruins came away with their second consecutive one-point victory yesterday 64-63 at home against the South Bend John Adams Eagles.

“It’s very heartwarming to get two dubs back-to-back for us and our coach,” said Northrop guard, Richard Robertson.

The visitors jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter 14-10. Northrop tied it up at 27 going into halftime. At the end of the third, the Eagles had a slim 40-37 lead over the Bruins.

The fourth quarter was all offense, as both teams constantly traded buckets and the lead. Northrop outscored John Adams 27-23 in the final quarter of play, just enough to edge the Eagles 64-63.

Northrop’s Robertson led all scorers with 27 points and was clutch at the free throw line late in the game. Neeko Braster also put up 14 for the Bruins. Walter Ellis was the Eagles’ leading scorer with 23.

“These are good games early in the season,” says Northrop head coach, Rod Chamble. “It really builds up character and gives us an opportunity to get used to that pressure situation.”

The Bruins’ next game is Tuesday, December 6 at DeKalb.
