BD wins Siena Heights tournament

BD girls defeated Addison last night in the Siena Heights Holiday Classic championship game 39-36.

“I knew it would be a good game and a good test for us,” BD Coach Craig Tanis said. “Both teams battled back and forth. We missed some key free throws down the stretch but our defense prevailed as we got crucial stops when we needed them. None more critical than Janessa Handy’s steal and break away basket with 2 seconds left in the game to seal the victory.”

Abbey Meinert had 16 points and 4 assists in the finals and was named tournament MVP. Morgan Tanis also made the All-Tournament team for the Patriots.

“I am extremely proud of my girls as they fought hard and gave 100% effort all night,” Tanis said. “Abbey seemed to be the only one that could get anything going offensively as Addison’s defense did a good job shutting down our inside scoring from Morgan (Tanis) and Ella (Nighswander).”

Nighswander had 8 points and 9 rebounds. Janessa Handy had 4 assists, 6 rebounds and 3 steals.

BD is now 6-0 heading into a stretch of 10 straight TCC games.
