BALDWIN — Brandon Beane is having a strong sophomore boys basketball season for the Baldwin Panthers who get back into action with a Friday home game against Pentwater.

Baldwin was undefeated before losing 75-71 against Frankfort in overtime last week.

“We came out in the first half and started playing sloppy a little bit,” Beane said. “We finished out with a good third quarter. That’s what we should have had. A lot of people were fouling out. I had four fouls.”

The Panthers also lost to Frankfort last season in the regional semifinals. A postseason rematch might be possible.

“Everybody would have to be finishing all four quarters, rebounding, taking good shots,” Beans said. “I’ve been doing OK but I feel I can do much better on my rebounding and finishing my shots.”

The Panthers need to keep focusing in upcoming games, Beane said.

With less than five weeks to go in the regular season, the Panthers have only seven games under their belts. Weather cancellations have been the main culprit. The Panthers are also set to play Saturday at Crossroads and next Wednesday at Walkerville.

“We have been practicing for these upcoming games,” Beane said. “We just have to get ready.”
