Claysburg's Kyle Glass is fouled by Williamsburg's Josiah Dowey on a fast break on Monday, Dec. 9, at Williamsburg High School. The story and additional photos will appear in the Dec. 16 edition of the Herald.

The Claysburg-Kimmel boys' basketball team got off to a slow start at the Northern Cambria Tip-Off Tournament but rebounded in fine fashion.

The Bulldogs managed just two first-quarter points in an opening round 61-45 loss to Saegertown on Dec. 6 but bounced back with a 54-28 victory in the consolation game a night later.

C-K found itself down 33-11 at the half against Saegertown but outscored its opponent 34-28 in the second half.

Wyatt Buell paced the Bulldogs with 12 points, including two 3-pointers. Kyle Glass added 10 points, while Parker Dibert hit three 3-pointers and finished with nine points.

"We are starting four players who have zero varsity experience – so they were nervous," C-K coach Mike Harris said. "We were down 40-11 before they realized that they could play with them, and we battled back and cut it to 12 a few times, but we just couldn't over come the slow start. But we did get better as the game progressed."

In the consolation game, C-K outscored Harmony 32-17 in the second and third quarters en route to the victory.

Buell drained four 3-pointers and finished with a game-high 16 points. Glass knocked in 13 points.

"We played really well as a team, and worked very hard," Harris said. "Kyle Glass made the all-tournament team, and he does a lot of good things for us. His leadership is what helps guide the young guys to reach their potential. Senior point guards are great to have on the team."

C-K, which played Williamsburg on Dec. 9, will entertain West Branch today, Dec. 12. The Bulldogs will travel to Mount Union on Dec. 16.
