The Dux headed to Byron Center on Friday night looking to get back to .500 on the year and trying to erase the memory of a tough game last year. The game started off slow with an 8-7 game after the first quarter. The second quarter was more of the same with B.C. taking a 2 point lead into the half, 19-17. The Dux defense turned things up in the third quarter and only gave up 6 points. Brady Gulker was a pest with his on ball defense all night long not allowing B.C. to get a flow. The Dux held the lead 31-25 after Abhisek Pusty hit a three at the buzzer to send it to the 4th. West took control from there behind the ball handling off Eli Stephen (team high 16 points) and stretched the lead to ten points. Brady Bush was clutch from the free throw line knocking down 6 free throws in a row to finish out the game. The Dux won 49-40 and are now 1-0 in conference and 3-3 on the season. They face Wayland on Tuesday night at home in a boys triple header.
