CHATSWORTH, Ga. -- The Bradley Central Bears basketball team took care of North Murray (Ga.), 68-42, to wrap up play in the 2019 Turkey Shootout.

Quante Berry paced the Bears with 19 points as Ashton Boyd chipped in with 17 of his own.

The two teams got off to a sluggish start after combining for just 18 points in the first quarter before the Bears exploded for 23 second-quarter points and went into the halftime break up 33-21.

The two teams were even in the third scoring 14 points each before the Bears outscored North Murray (0-3) 21-7 in the final eight minutes to improve to 2-0 on the season.

Berry and Mason Rothwell paced Bradley with five rebounds each and Boyd, Rothwell, and Brandon Shumbera led the offense with three assists apiece.

Berry also recorded a team-high eight steals in the win.

Bradley shot 44 percent (24-of-54) from the floor and went 10-for-29 (34 percent) from 3-point range. The Bears were effective at the free-throw line going 77 percent (10-for-13). 

The stout Bear defense forced 30 turnovers in the contest.

The hosts shot 47 percent (16-of-34) overall and shot 40 percent (6-of-15) from distance. The Mountaineers struggled to get to the free-throw line going 4-for-8 (50 percent) from the charity stripe.

The Bears return home on Tuesday, Dec. 3rd as they take on Blackman in their home opener at 7:30 p.m.

A Better Plan Is Needed For Quarry Golf Course At Mountain Creek
