Whether students like it or not, the school year is about halfway over and the Bruins basketball season is underway. The team has four returning starters this year.
The Mountain View boys basketball teams have played two games so far. The first game was a loss to Springville at Springville. A tough game, the Red Devils won 69-55.
The Bruins rallied during the second game to beat up on the Spanish Fork Dons, 75-50.
The Bruins were fueled by a 27-point third quarter where they held the Dons to nine points. The defense played well and the offensive played even better.
Senior Ricky Stafford is leading the Bruins with 30 points so far this season. KJ Wesley comes in next with 29 points.
The Bruins will travel to Cyprus on December 16th and then the home opener against Pleasant Grove will be on December 20.
Students and fans have high hope for the Bruins this year, and as of week 2 of the high school basketball season, the Dale Stewart and Dusty Litster of the Deseret News listed the Bruins as No. 5 in the 4A rankings, behind Olympus (No 1.), Woods Cross (No. 2), Timpview (No. 3) and Springville (No. 4)
