The Rock Bridge boys’ basketball team improved its record to 14-2 with a 64-47 home win over Hillcrest on Friday.

The Bruins took advantage of several early fouls by Hillcrest in the first half, and were able to add 14 points from the free-throw line.

Starting guard Terrell Turner contributed 27 points. Twenty-one of those points came in the first half. Bruins’ head coach Jim Scanlon said Turner had an excellent game.

Though Turner was a bright spot, Scanlon said he was not happy with the consistency his team showed.

The Bruins entered the second half with a 19-point lead, and added eight unanswered points at the start of the third quarter. However, Hillcrest dominated the rest of the quarter and cut Rock Bridge’s lead to 12 points.

An 8-point fourth quarter by forward Erik Darkow lead the Bruins to a 17-point victory. Darkow finished the game with 10 points.

The Bruins’ next game is on the road Tuesday night against St. Charles.
