UPDATED: Brough scores 30 in Thunderbird victory

Saturday, December 1, 2012

Eastern Greene allowed just 14 points over the first 16 minutes as the Thunderbirds cruised to a 53-34 victory over visiting Mitchell in a non-conference high school boys basketball game Saturday night.

This was the third victory in as many games for EGHS, who got a career-high 30 points from Tyler Brough.

He made 12 of 19 shots, including 3 of 3 from 3-point range.

"I really think our defense set the tone, much like it did against North Central," said Eastern Greene coach Levi Carmichael. "We did a lot of good things in the first half, but unlike against North Central we were able to continue it for the entire game.

"Tyler was our main scorer, our only player in double figures. He shot it really well. But we had a lot of other kids that contributed. This was the kind of game where we got to play a lot of kids and had a chance to work one some things."

The Thunderbirds will be off until Friday when they play at Brown County. Next Saturday they will play at North Knox.
