Day one of The Bash in the Books

FARMINGTON – Day one of the 42nd Annual Mike Lee Holiday Basketball Bash featured nine games with some competition across divisions and some rivalries renewed. The opening day of The Bash welcomes teams to the tournament with a contest that is not part of bracket play.

DAY 1: PHOTOS | ON-DEMAND VIDEO

Yesterday’s game of the day was the Holy Family-Profile boys game that saw the Griffins come out on top, 68-66. The Patriots led early, but Holy Family came back to take a double-digit lead late before Profile mounted a come-back of its own. Profile sophomore Josh Robie set a tournament record with 11 three-point fields in a game en route to 33 points, while the Patriots all set the high-water mark with 15 threes as a team.

In the night cap, the Division IV Farmington boys jumped out to an 11-0 lead on old rival Coe-Brown and led 17-10 after the first quarter. The Division II Bears responded in the final three quarters to outscore the host Tigers 52-26 and come away with a 62-43 victory.

Bracket play for the boys and pool play for the girls gets underway today at 10:00 am.
