BREVARD, N.C. – The Brevard men's basketball team returns to the court this weekend when it treks to Ferrum for a 4 p.m. clash with the Panthers on Saturday.
Brevard, fresh off an 87-78 victory over Berea on Wednesday evening, is in search of back-to-back wins for the first time this season. The Tornados (2-7) are paced by the play of JaMarquis Johnson and Stevie Williams, who are averaging 15.3 and 13.2 points per game, respectively.
In Brevard's nine-point win over the Mountaineers Johnson poured in a game high 22 points, while grabbing 10 rebounds. In Johnson's third 20-point outing of the season he finished 6-of-13 from the floor and 7-of-9 at the free throw line and was one of four players to top double figures for the Tornados in the contest.
