The Bevill State Bears are off to a perfect start following Saturday’s 82-61 victory over the Stillman Tigers JV in the season opener at Glen Clem Gymnasium.

The Bears, which finished 9-19 during the 2017-18 season, battled with the Tigers for early control of the contest, eventually building a six-point advantage at the half, 40-34.

The second half belonged solidly to Bevill State, with the Bears quickly pushing their lead into double digits early after the break then pushing further ahead en route to the 82-61 win.

Nelson Haskin led the Bears with a double-double effort of 16 points, 12 rebounds and two blocks, while Wanya King added 16 points, six rebounds and a steal. Miguel Williams had 12 points, Omar Bartholomew scored eight points with seven rebounds and a block and Chris Freeman had seven points with five rebounds and a block.

The Bears (1-0) return to action on Tuesday at Enterprise State at 7:30. On Thursday and Friday, Bevill State plays in the Veterans Classic at Shelton State.
