The Bainbridge High varsity boys basketball team has closed its first two weeks of the season undefeated following a 79-45 win at home against North Kitsap High on Tuesday, Dec. 3.

BHS jumped in front early in the first quarter and led 38-17 at the half.

They maintained an impressive lead, despite a late third-quarter scoring surge by North Kitsap, and the Spartans pulled away in the fourth quarter.

Spartan Head Coach Scott Orness said that he was very happy with the way the team is shaping up this year.

"I felt we were the aggressors from the tip," he said.

"We have great depth this year. When the guys give a good hard three or five minutes, good things happen," Orness said.

He said rebounding is an area in need of further development if the team hopes to remain competitive.

"Rebounding was a big issue this year," he said. "We need to tighten up on preventing penetration. North Kitsap did a good job of pointing that out as one of our weaknesses."

Bainbridge plays its next game on the road against Chief Sealth at 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13.
