Bulldogs scrap their way to split
Basketball’s dog days may have already arrived at Richards.
That’s because these assuredly aren’t the ’Dogs’ days.
At least that was true a couple times in a busy week. Two South Suburban Conference contests, followed by a pair of encounters in Rockford Jefferson’s Martin Luther King holiday tournament proved draining to Richards, an assessment validated by its mostly uninspired performance in the second of two Saturday games.
But the resultant 54-46 loss to the tourney hosts wasn’t the Bulldogs’ only low point. Even more frustrating to coach John Chappetto was Richards’ Friday defeat against Oak Forest, which marred the former’s heretofore spotless league ledger.
