The Belvoir Eagles maintained a dedicated passing and shooting game, combined with an equally determined effort at the opposite end of the hardwood, through two dynamic periods to down the visiting Joint Base Andrews Falcons, 68-64 in a late-season Washington Area Military Athletic Conference men’s basketball showdown, March 6 at Wells Field House.
From the opening tip to the final buzzer, veteran Belvoir guards, Anthony Johnson and Deonte Bleach, kept momentum building with their trademark rapid-fire passing game around the perimeter, connecting with lane-charging specialist, A.J. Shelton; Brandon Ehrlich and Robert Stephens for some early buckets. Adding steam to Belvoir’s efforts, forward-center, Aaron Barfield; and shooting guards, Ahmad Williams, Jacob Culver and Ryan Stephens dialed in their accuracy from the three-point arc and hit a string of clean shots, ultimately sending the Falcons to the bench at halftime trailing 33-28.
Second-period action quickly unfolded as a back-and-forth test of wills between the two squads. Despite closing in on Belvoir’s leads on multiple occasions in the back half of the contest, the Eagles defense kept the visitors’ gains in check and ultimately stepped into the winner’s circle with a 68-64 win for the week-19 books.
