Nathan Davis ripped Mo Valley for 24 points as the Devils won in a sloppy game.

The Bellwood-Antis Blue Devil boys’ basketball team traveled to Moshannon Valley to take on the Knights last night.

The Blue Devils played a rough game, but still came out with a 66-56 victory.

Nathan Davis led the team making four 3-pointers and scored 24 points.

“We definitely didn’t play our best game, but a win is a win,” said Davis. “It’s good to get ugly wins sometimes, now we just have to get ready for the tough games coming up.”

B-A plays Tussey Mountain Thursday before facing Southern Fulton in the ICC championship game Saturday.  All that before beginning the District 6-AA playoffs as the No. 5 seed against Penn Cambria.

Joey Padula followed Davis scoring 14 points.  Ethan McGee scored 8 points and Jake Burch and Jarrett Taneyhill scored 6 points. Noah D’Angelo helped by scoring 5 points.

Burch agreed with Davis.  He said, “It wasn’t the best win, and we have to work on some things in practice today to get ready for a big game tomorrow.”

McGee said a good start will be the key to playing Tussey Mountain.

“Tomorrow we need to come out hot and put them away early,” he said. “They are a good team so we need to get stops defensively and execute on offense.  It’s a good tune up game for our next upcoming games.”

The Blue Devils record is now 16-5 overall.
