HS Basketball – Bellevue Plays in 3rd Straight Regional Final Tonight
The Broncos have not advanced past the Regional stage in school history, and have reached the Finals the last two seasons. Last season, Bellevue fell to Marcellus Howardsville Christian 58-46 at Harper Creek to eliminate them at 22-2. In 2017, they suffered a 61-49 loss to Benton Harbor DREAM Academy on their home floor. Both losses were just the second defeats of the season for Bellevue.
This season, Bellevue enters the Regional Final in Division 4 at 23-1 and hope to continue their season at Fowler against the Pittsford Wildcats. The familiarity between the two is that both are the remaining members of the South Central Athletic Association in the MHSAA postseason. The Broncos earned the West Division title for the fourth straight season while the Wildcats picked up the East Division title for the second time in the last three seasons.
The two squads met earlier this season in Pittsford, where Bellevue picked up a 49-39 win. The Broncos have won the last two meetings between them.
While Bellevue is looking to continue their run in the postseason, Pittsford is on their best postseason run since 2010, when they lost in the Regional Semifinals.
The winner advances to the State Quarterfinals on Tuesday, March 12th, to play the winner of the Wyoming Tri-Unity Christian/ Muskegon Heights Academy final in Mendon. The contest will take place at Charlotte High School.
