Somerset boys basketball gets early edge against MBC's top contenders


The Middle Border boys basketball conference is packed with teams that view themselves as contenders for the 2012-13 title.

Somerset faced two of those contenders in their first MBC games last week. The Spartans were able to come out victorious in both of those skirmishes.

The Spartans went to Baldwin-Woodville last Tuesday for their first MBC game of the season. B-W is a tough locale for any opponent, but the Spartans were able to pull out a 55-51 win over the Blackhawks.
