Tigers defend well in win over Bison

Chagrin Falls used a stifling defense and a consistent offense to beat visiting Beachwood on Saturday, 51-36

“I thought for three quarters we played solid basketball,” said Chagrin Falls coach Dave Bargar. “We did a much better job tonight moving the ball and getting good looks. I think it showed as we were 20-of-36 from the field.”

The Tigers jumped out to a 30-11 halftime lead then overcame a few mistakes in the second half to seal the win.

“Our on-ball defense was good and I thought we defended the 3-point line,” Bargar said. “We didn’t finish the game like we should tonight. We turned the ball over six times and didn’t play with the strength and confidence that we usually do.”

Nick Vinci drained three 3-pointers on the way to leading the Tigers with 17 points. James Kosmides added 14 points and nine rebounds.

With the win, the Tigers improved to 1-1 overall and 1-0 in the Chagrin Valley Conference Chagrin Division.

“It was good to get our first league win of the season,” Bargar said. “We need to continue to get better as we get into our league schedule.”
