The George Bush Broncos took on the Elkins Knights Tuesday night coming away with a 55-46 victory. A slow start led to a 7 point deficit after 1 (17-10), before pulling to within two at half 27-25. When the Broncos came back out from halftime they were fired up and ready to play. Through out the 2nd half the Broncos stayed ahead of the Elkins Knights, ending the 3rd quarter ahead 37-34. The Bush Broncos won and closed the game with dunks from Danny McAdory (#24) and Brandon Love (#40) (Broncos). Leading the way for the Broncos was D. McAdory (#24) w/ 18 points, B. Joe (#11) w/ 15 points, B. Love (#40) w/ 9 points, and DJ Stewart (#2) w/ 7 points. Leading the way for the Elkins Knights was J. Fanuiel (#32) w/ 22 points, S. Bell (#1) and K.

After, the game I was able to catch up with DJ Stewart (#2 Bush Bronco Point Guard) and ask him a few questions, here's what he had to say...
1. Tell me about your performance tonight. You guys were down at one point. What helped you stay focused?
I believe we did great! Basketball is like a marathon and those guys had a great start and we had the same pace. Bust at the end they ran out of gas and coach kept telling us we got this!
2. How do you plan to prepare for next game?
We plan on working on our chemistry as a team, free throws, and trusting one another.
3. With this being your Sr year what are your plans for this year?
My goal is to win district MVP and be district champions.
4. In one word describe your team.
I would say we are "Mysterious" because you never know who can have a hot night!
