BROCTON (Jan. 22)- Brocton coach Matt Seiberg called it "old school basketball."

A physical contest which only saw 13 free throws in the game went in Brocton's favor Friday night as it stopped Sherman, 34-27, in CCAA West 2 boys high school basketball.

"Usually, if I were to look at my offense and I see we scored 34 points, I would say no way we would win against Sherman," Seiberg said. "But we played good defense. They were cold shooting, but our kids were physical on defense and boxed out well. We made it difficult for Chris Robson."

The Bulldogs used an 11-5 first-quarter run to take a 22-16 halftime lead. The home team outscored Sherman, 12-11 in the second half.

"Sherman was cold, but so were we," Seiberg said. "It came down to who was going to outlast the other team. It was a big 'W' for us with the way the standings have been going. Overall, it was a great team win. No one on the stat sheet stands out. Ten points scored in the fourth quarter - you can tell both teams played well on defense."

Robson finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and two steals for Sherman while Jared Gleason hauled down 10 rebounds.
