HYATTSVILLE – After winning its third-straight IAC title last season, the Bullis School boys basketball team is looking to follow up with another title in the BSN Summer League.
Bullis picked up a 73-69 win against North Point in Sunday’s game.
With the recent success of the Bullis program, Coach Bruce Kelley said the league gives the younger players an opportunity to gain some experience before the season.
Kelley said he was pleased with his team’s effort on Sunday.
“The guys are mentally prepared to play,” Kelley said. “We’re just like everyone else trying to figure our team out. We passed today’s test.”
One of the players who stood out in Sunday’s game was Bullis’ 6-foot, 4-inch guard Mickey Bell. Bell knocked down several long jumpers and had success going to the basket. On the court he shows little fear.
“I drink a lot of water, listen to music and relax,” Bell said. “Then I go out and play. I try not to stress myself out.”
While North Point was unable to pick up the victory, shooting guard Joshua Holmes had success hitting his jump shot.
“Before each game I always say a prayer and try to get peace while focusing on what I’m trying to do,” Holmes said.
