Before an overflow crowd, Bullis senior point guard Vado Morse scored a game-high 19 points Friday to lead the Bulldogs to a 61-50 victory over Landon on Senior Night at Bullis Athletic Center.

“It was a good team win,” said Morse. “A good team performance.”

Morse said he wanted to impress the crowd and put on a show in front of the audience.

“I had a slow start at the beginning of the first half and I knew that I had to pick it up to get momentum for my team so I tried to do that the second half,” he said.
