Stadium tops Bellarmine to stay perfect in Narrows 4A

Stadium senior forward Lucious Brown scored 15 of his game-high 24 points in the second half, and the Tigers rallied in the fourth quarter for a 53-46 win over Bellarmine Prep at home tonight to move to 7-0 in the Narrows 4A.

Trailing 39-34 heading into the fourth, the Tigers held the Lions scoreless for over five minutes as they went on a 12-0 run to take control. Bobby Moorehead capped the stretch with two free throws to give the Tigers a 46-39 lead with 3:06 remaining. The Tigers continued drawing contact and getting to the free-throw line, converting 15 of 18 attempts in the fourth quarter to help secure the win.

Bellarmine Prep jumped out to a 16-7 lead early in the second quarter on a three-pointer by Malachi Flynn, who led the Lions with 15 points. But Stadium senior guard Mark Galanesi came off the bench to hit three three-pointers in the second quarter to help pull the Tigers even. Flynn’s pull-up jumper with three seconds left in the half gave the Lions a 26-24 lead at the break.

Brown kept the Tigers close in the third quarter with six points, but Flynn fed Will Wolf for an open layup with a second left in the period to give Bellarmine Prep a 39-34 lead. The Tigers defense then took command, flustering the Lions into forced shots and turnovers.

Moorehead and Malik Mayeax finished with 10 points apiece for Stadium, while Rex Bodoia had 11 points and 10 rebounds for Bellarmine Prep. The Lions dropped to 2-5 in the Narrows 4A, tied for fifth place with Olympia.
