Looking to build on their come-from-behind win at Northwood last Thursday, the Blair Boys’ Varsity Basketball team’s confidence was left by the wayside in their 68-52 home loss against a fast and athletic Paint Branch team. Turnovers cost the Blazers early, as the eight they committed in the first period led to opportunities for Paint Branch to score on the break. Going into halftime, Blair trailed by 17, 40-23. Paint Branch’s lead never faltered as the Blazers looked deep down their bench for players to spark energy into the team’s effort and performance on the court. Though the Blazers eventually lost by 16, 68-52, they have gotten a taste of what waits for them on Friday, January 11th, at Springbrook High School.
