Ravenscroft center Marcus Bryan was instrumental in the Ravens’ 72-56 win over Word of God on Wednesday night. Coach Kevin Billerman said Bryan (pictured right) played some of his best basketball in the second half.
In the first half though, Bryan moved into second place in rebounds in school history. He needed just two rebounds to move ahead of Nate Williams, who had 656 in his career.
Bryan grabbed his second rebound early in the first quarter.
“It feels pretty good,” Bryan said of the accomplishment. “I’m working toward first.”
Bryan will have to put in a lot of work to catch Ryan Kelly, who left the school with 950 rebounds.
In the win over the Rams, Bryan finished with 11 rebounds to bring his total to 665. He also finished with 19 points and five blocks.
“I think in the first half, Marcus missed some shots and had a couple ball go through his hands,” Billerman said. “In the second half he was fabulous. Marcus certainly dominated the backboard.”
