The Nevada Blue Jays returned to the hardwood for home hoops last Friday night welcoming their longtime competitors Bradley Bears to their territory at Nevada High School Gymnasium. With a lot of history between the two clubs of several close encounters during their match-ups over the years, the Blue Jays came out victorious over Bradley 60-43 in their first meeting of the season.
Nevada came out with the early spark and led Bradley 19-11 to end first quarter play. In the second, the Blue Jays outscored Bradley 17-12, which led to Nevada leading the Bears 36-23 at halftime. In the second half, the Blue Jays outscored the Bears 24-20 for third and fourth quarters combined. Nevada would roll onto an 17 point win to account for back to back wins.
The Blue Jays were scheduled to compete in the semifinals of the Nashville Banker's Classic on last Thursday night, but due to inclement weather earlier in the week forced the Jay's to pull out according to head coach Bobby Mullins.
This week, the Blue Jays look to be in full force with scheduled games against Emerson on the road and returning home Friday night Jan. 26 hosting Taylor.
