Falling flat

East Fairmont dominated by Westside, 95-60

PLEASANT VALLEY — Saturday’s East Fairmont vs. Westside boys’ basketball game could be viewed from two different perspectives — a thing a beauty or agony.

The thing of beauty being Westside’s Corey Bowles, who did anything but miss in the second half, while drilling seven 3-pointers and adding 28 points in that half.

The agony?

East Fairmont playing lackadaisically, while getting throttled by 35 points, 95-60.

“We started out flat — we have to find a group of five players that are playing the best together,” East Fairmont’s head coach Tyrone Asterino stated. “It’s not always the best five players, but it’s the five players playing the best together. We’ve got some experimenting to do. We’re not back to full strength yet and we’re not where we want to be, but we have five games in now, so we will see what happens.”

From a fan’s perspective, it wasn’t just Bowles who put the final fork in the Bees’ comeback hopes, but it was a few other guys who helped cap the already growing lead with additional threes that went for gold.

When the rout was over, the Renegades tallied 10 total 3-pointers — seven by Mr. Hot Hand Himself in Bowles —and the other three coming from Jordan Browning, Bryce Robinson and Breyer Morgan.

“He’s (Bowles) a very nice player,” Asterino stated. “We addressed him as being the shooter to guard. He was their shooter and is supposed to be getting shots for his team, and he definitely held up his end of the bargain and I thought he played a very nice game. I think he is a nice shooter — they have a very nice team. I think the combination was poor defense by us, but I also think they’re a pretty good basketball team.”

    It wasn’t that he was standing around watching the proceedings. That’s not how it is with Jared Barber.
    No, he’d jog up the sideline, then back.
