Coach Mark Barth’s Bethlehem Christian Academy boys basketball team is 5-4 overall as it enjoys its holiday break.
The Knights, who are 5-5 overall and 1-0 in region play, have been playing improved basketball of late and are winners of three of their last four contests.
In some ways, Barth was disappointed his team had to stop playing.
“We were playing pretty well going into the break,” Barth said. “We were starting to play a full four quarters rather than just part of a game.”
The lone setback in the last four games for BCA came at the hands of Covenant Christian of Loganville. The two teams squared off in a tournament hosted by Monsignor Donovan on Dec. 20.
After falling behind early, the Knights rallied to make it competitive before dropping a 70-62 decision. The following day, BCA rallied to defeated Piedmont Academy 68-61.
Perhaps the biggest win to this point in the season was a 57-56 overtime victory against region foe Nathanael Greene on Dec. 19.
The players were set to return to practice Monday. Games with Monsignor Donovan, Brandon Hall and region foe Curtis Baptist are on the upcoming slate for the BCA Knights.
“We could have already won seven games at this point,” Barth said. “However, we got healthy and that helped us improve. We are really working well as a team right now.”
