Bishop Tosi got his turn tonight as the back that carried the team as the freshman came through clutch at the free throw line in an 81-68 win over Walla Walla tonight on day two of the Bulldog Classic. Tosi not only was a perfect 4-for-4 from the field but was six-for-seven from the free throw line scoring 14 points in Bellevue’s comeback win.
Contrary to previous games, Bellevue was down after the first half 38-36 before dominating the second half 45-30 with hot shooting and rebounding control. Tosi’s efforts led a 13-for-15 mark at the free throw line, good enough for 87% while Walla Walla was 1-for-3 from the line. BC held a 17-9 rebounding advantage as well in the second half.
Bellevue wasted no time regaining the lead at the start of the second half but the Warriors kept it close at 65-63 Bellevue with a little over five minutes to play. Tosi made both ends of a one and one before a seven point run to move the lead to double digits at 74-63 with 2:26 remaining. From there the Bulldogs maintained control in an all-around clean second half that catapulted Bellevue to victory.
