Boys' basketball: M-A wins big over Menlo

 

Menlo-Atherton overcame a 31-24 halftime deficit by holding local rival Menlo scoreless in the fourth quarter during a 53-38 nonleague boys' basketball victory on Wednesday.

The Bears struggled early as Menlo's 6-foot-6 sophomore Richard Harris scored 10 of his team-high 12 points in the first half. M-A coach Phillip White made some defensive adjustments at halftime, which resulted in Harris being limited offensively as guard Jesse Perkins and center Walbank Mahoni helped supply the defensive pressure.

Meanwhile, M-A senior guard Jeff Keller warmed up and scored 13 of his game-high 23 points after intermission. Keller has scored 92 points in the past five games to help the Bears go 4-1 during that time. Mahoni added 11 points against Menlo (2-8) while Reed Foster and Myles Brewer combined for 13.

Menlo-Atherton will visit Woodside on Friday in a nonleague test at 7:45 p.m., while Menlo visits Priory in a WBAL game at 6:30 p.m.
