A historic season came to a close for the Bethlehem Christian Academy boys basketball team Saturday.
The Knights, coached by Mark Barth, advanced to the state quarterfinals for the first time in program history before falling to Crisp Academy 60-42 in a game played at Georgia Southwestern University in Americus.
BCA, which finished the season 13-12 overall, was paced by Kevin Green, who scored 12 points. The Knights had advanced to the Elite Eight two days earlier by defeateding Citizens Christian 60-48. Jacob Walls was the leading scorer in the opening round contest with 17 points while Green added 16. Ben Morgan scored nine and Austin Schwebel scored seven.
“The season didn’t end the way we wanted, but we met our goal of making it to state,” Barth said. “We faced a big, strong, physical team in the quarterfinals. They have a lot of weapons and I think may surprise some people in how far they go. They have two 6-4 players who are very athletic and also have strong guard play.”
On Monday, LeBron James scored a career-high 61 points in a Heat victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. LBJ’s career high was also a franchise record for the Miami Heat. After Monday’s victory the Heat had won eight straight games. They have also gone 12-1 in their last 13 games.
This is in large part due to the great success that James has had in that time span, which was showcased with his dominating performance on Monday.
It was just a month or so ago when it seemed like everyone had casted the King out of the race to win his fifth NBA MVP award. And in that time it was a fair call as Kevin Durant was having a beautiful run in what has been his best season thus far.
