Polk County Middle's Ross Dow

A depleted Polk County Middle boys basketball team saw its three-game winning streak end Monday with a 50-38 loss at Brevard Middle.

The Wolverines (3-3) were missing four players due to illness, including two starters. Head coach Brad Muse also missed the game.

Brevard (5-1) built a 26-9 halftime lead, then withstood a late Polk Middle rally.

Brody Wilkins had 11 points to lead Polk Middle, with Nate Fagan adding nine. Luke Garrison scored eight points, with Ross Dow and Brennan Oates each adding four points and Dallas Littlejohn scoring two.

The Wolverines return home Thursday to face Rugby Middle in their final game before the holiday break.
