High school boys basketball: Penns Valley rallies past Bellefonte

The Penns Valley boys’ basketball team turned a one-point halftime deficit into a 51-39 victory over Bellefonte on Monday in the opening night of the Ram Winter Jam.

Penns Valley (5-2) senior Logan Johnson had a game-high 20 points, including a 7 for 8 showing from the foul line.

“Bellefonte outhustled us and outscrapped us in the first quarter,” Penns Valley coach Terry Glunt said.

However, a strong showing from the foul line made all the difference, as the Rams were 17 of 21 from the line, while Bellefonte was only 9 for 21.

Penns Valley will play for the tournament championship Tuesday night against Juniata while Bellefonte will face East Juniata in the consolation round.
