January 1, 2014

Defense took center stage as the Granbury Pirates split a pair of basketball games over the weekend, losing 37-34 at Gainesville and winning 37-28 over Cleburne at home.

“These offenses are having to be so deliberate to get a look,” said Granbury coach David Breazeale. “It’s eating the clock.”

Mitchell May led Granbury (6-10) with 10 points against Cleburne, including a critical rebound and putback for a basket in the fourth quarter. It gave the Pirates a 10point lead.

“We needed a win, I don’t care if it was 1-0,” said Breazeale after the Cleburne contest.

“We rebounded real well today. The whole game they weren’t getting second shots.

Granbury trailed Cleburne 20-19 after three quarters, but finished with an 18-8 run. A big factor was going 11-for-17 at the free throw line in the fourth quarter.

Clay Brawner led the Pirates against Gainesville, scoring 10 points. Tbey played that game without Kevin Hennard, who was out sick, but he returned against Cleburne.

Granbury led Gainesville 19-9 at the half and 28-23 going into the fourth quarter.

Prior to the victory against Cleburne, the Pirates had dropped five of their previous six games.
