Bottom falls out in second half for Bruins

THE OUTLOOK: DAVID BALL - Barlows Dominik Copper drives the baseline against Grant defender Ollie Sims during the Generals 74-51 win Friday night. PORTLAND — The Barlow boys basketball team lost its shooting touch in the second half Friday and fell away from Grant High 74-51 in the season opener for both schools.

Dominik Copper knocked down four 3-pointers in the first half, including one just before the buzzer to bring the Bruins even 29-29 heading into the locker room.

But the second half belonged to the Generals, who came out of the break on a nine-point run and never looked back. Guard Nate Bradford got to the rim repeatedly, scoring 14 of his game-high 35 points in the third quarter.

Barlow hosts The Dalles at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
