Brookfield's boys finished up their regular season on Thursday night, falling to Lawson 61-33. After sticking around in the early stages of the game, Brookfield fell into a 36-19 hole by the halftime break and never had a real chance to crawl back into the game.
The Bulldogs finish their regular season with a 2-21 record going into district play. Lawson snapped a six-game losing streak with the victory on Thursday night, and finish their regular season 14-11.
"We've played a little better the past two games," Brookfield coach Jerod Gillman said. "All-in-all, I thought the guys hung in there. Obviously, getting better at putting the ball in the basket has to be a major of-season emphasis for us."
In the first quarter, Cooper Cisna kept the Bulldogs hanging around with a pair of three-pointers. Lawson harbored a 17-10 lead at the end of the first quarter, and posted a similar output in the second. The Bulldogs scored seven points in both of the final two quarters, and Lawson's 14-point third quarter totally put the game to rest at 50-26.
Lawson's Coleman Weber led all scorers with 21 points, and Zach Miller finished with 17.
Jacob Day was the only Bulldog in double figures in scoring on Thursday night. He finished with 12 points. Jeremy Williams posted six points, and Cisna's two first-quarter bombs proved to be his only points of the evening.
"We'll have better basketball to talk about in the coming years," Gillman said.
Brookfield travels to Hamilton to face top-seeded Maryville on Tuesday evening.
