By Wade Linville –

The Western Brown Broncos continue to show improvement on the court, and on Jan. 21 they would gallop to a 75-40 non-league win at home over the visiting Hillsboro Indians.
Leading the way in the Bronco win was junior guard Clayton Wolfe with 17 points, sinking six-of-15 shots from the field that included three three-pointers, and connecting on two-of-two attempts from the charity stripe.
Also reaching double figures in scoring in Saturday’s win was Western Brown’s senior postman Hunter O’Hara, who finished with 11 points with four-of-seven shooting from the field and two-of-three shooting from the foul line.
O’Hara also pulled down 10 rebounds to record a double-double.
Also performing for the Broncos was senior guard Logan Nickell, who drained four-of-six shots from the field, including 1-1 from three-point range, to finish with nine points.
The Broncos entered Saturday’s non-league game coming off a 77-59 league loss to the Goshen Warriors from the night before.
The Broncos led 31-30 at halftime, but were outscored by the Warriors 47-28 in the second half.
