BREMEN â€” Coming off a two-week holiday layover, the Lions got off to a bit of a slow start Tuesday.
Once they shook off the rust, however, they took over.
After surrendering a 4-0 game-opening run by visiting Bethany Christian, Bremen locked in to hold the Bruins scoreless from the field for more than six minutes, grabbing a 10-point, 15-5 lead in the process. Bethany responded with a run of its own in the second quarter, but the Lions answered back and never trailed after the 2:30 mark of the first in a 59-45 win at home.

HARROGATE, Tenn. â€”Â Argos graduate Amberly Oâ€™Dell recently rewrote the Lincoln Memorial University womenâ€™s basketball record book as she became the programâ€™s all-time leader in 3-pointers.
Oâ€™Dell, a 1997 graduate of Argos High School and senior at LMU, hit four triples in the Railsplittersâ€™ 79-75 loss at Catawba on Dec. 3 to surpass her schoolâ€™s previous career record with a total of 203.
â€śIâ€™m very blessed to have broken this record with such a great team and under the Coach (Roger) Hodge era,â€ť said Oâ€™Dell. â€śIâ€™m so thankful for all the support my family and Coach Hodge have given me.â€ť
PERU â€” The Lancers have had to endure a tough two-game stretch in which the second half has not been their friend.
Their weakness became their strength Thursday as LaVille outscored North Miami 23-9 in the third quarter and 47-23 in the second half on its way to a 79-54 Peru Tournament-opening win over the Warriors.
The Lancers move on to face Whitko in the tourney championship tonight at 8 p.m. after the Wildcats beat host Peru in the nightcap Thursday.
