William Chrisman's boys basketball team loses second straight in tournament
Poor shooting continues to haunt William Chrisman in the MaxPreps Holiday Classic.
The Bears were held to a season’s low point total in falling to the Bellarmine Bells of San Jose (Calif.) 76-64 Saturday.
“So far in this tournament we have not shot well,” Chrisman coach John Vickers said. “We can’t put the ball in the hole. We are getting all of the shots and looks we want. We are playing some unbelievable talent.”
The third quarter, in which it was outscored 29-12, put Chrisman in a 63-45 deficit it couldn’t overcome.
Freddie Eberhardt guided the Bells with 24 points.
Justin Clark scored 20, Jon Ekey 12 and Nathan Martin 12 for Chrisman (4-4).
“Their best player and big guy (Brad) Harrison, who is 6-foot, 8 inches, weighs 230 and is going to Santa Clara, was in foul trouble and then fouled out,” Vickers said. “We let somebody else (Eberhardt) beat us.”
Harrison scored only eight points.
Chrisman, which fell to 0-2 in the tournament and 4-4 overall, played again at 11:30 a.m. today. A fourth game will be played Tuesday. The Bears return home Wednesday.
