Anthony Johnson has loomed large, literally and figuratively, all season for Glen Mills.
So when the 6-7, double-double-per-night threat spent all but 2:58 of the first half Saturday on the bench in foul trouble, it could’ve been a precursor to trouble.
Instead, Johnson’s absence provided the rest of the Battlin’ Bulls a chance to display just how well they’ve started the season.
Without their big man in the middle, the Bulls managed to have no trouble dispatching Upper Darby in a 59-44 nonleague win thanks to the strength of an under-the-radar backcourt.
Tyreek Brickus did the honors with a game-high 19 points, including 16 in the first half to set the tone for Glen Mills (5-2). Steven Welsh turned it on in the second half, scoring 11 of his 14 points after the break.
