Jason Jones netted a career-high 27 points to lead Bald Eagle Area to a 78-69 victory over Puxsutawney on Saturday.
The two teams combined for 17 3-pointers, but Jones’ inside play made the difference for the Eagles (14-4).
Ryan Dyke made two of BEA’s four 3-pointers in the first quarter and Jones took advantage as the Chucks (9-8) tightened up on the perimeter.
“On the post, he was just rebounding putting them back in,” BEA coach Bill Butterworth said of Jones. “He had an all-around good post game tonight. We kept feeding him and he used his speed inside.”
Never miss a local story.
Bryan Greene and Brandon Gettig added 14 and 13, respectively for BEA. Punxsutawney‘s Brandon Mancuso nailed five 3-pointers and had a game-high 28 points.
The Eagles return to action Tuesday at Penns Valley.
