“The guys responded by playing good defense and having good offense and showed character,” Burnet head coach Roy Kiser said. “We had balanced scoring and contributions from a lot of people. We hit threes, that always helps us.”
Kiser proclaimed the Bulldogs healthy, which is important since District 8-3A play begins Jan. 11 with a home date against Liberty Hill at 8 p.m.
“We’re doing some good things before district starts,” he said.
