The first quarter was painful for Michael Bess Jr. and the Princeton High boys’ basketball team as the Tigers hosted Nottingham last Friday.
PHS ended the quarter trailing 8-4, mustering just two buckets on nearly 20 shots while sophomore guard Bess took a knock.
“We just started off slow, that is how we have been in a couple of games,” said Bess. “I cut my hand in the first.” more
