McGee scored six fourth-quarter points as Borden pulled away.
“When someone gets hot, we try to get the ball to that person,” Gillam said. “That’s what I love about this team. Everyone can get points.”
One area of weakness was at the charity stripe. The Braves went just 15 of 25 and missed four front ends of bonus opportunities.
“Our free throw shooting was atrocious,” Nash said. “Absolutely horrendous. It was awful. We’ll get better.”
Despite the poor free throw shooting, Borden is 6-0 and has the state’s second-longest winning streak at 16.
“We knew we had a lot to build off of,” Gillam said. “We’ve put a lot of hard work into it.”
“We knew we could be good, but we knew we had to put a lot of hard work into it,” McGee said. “We’re working hard every day to get better.”
The Braves have a week off before a showdown with Paoli on Saturday. The Rams are unbeaten and 10th in Class 2A.
EASTERN PICKS UP FIRST WIN
Eastern earned its first victory of the season with a 59-38 triumph over West Washington in Saturday’s Washington County Invitational consolation game.
Alex Doebler scored 23 points. Jack Hayes added 14 and Grant Newcomb hit a pair of 3s and finished with10 points for the Musketeers.
“It’s real nice,” Eastern coach Scott Newcomb said of the initial victory. “The kids have hung in there. Mentally, it’s been tough on them. I told them to quit worrying about winning and losing and concentrate on doing the right things all the time. The players responded tonight.
The Musketeers jumped out to a 17-9 lead after one quarter and held a 31-24 advantage at the half before pulling away in the second half.
Hayes’ 14 points — along with eight points and nine rebounds in Friday’s loss to Borden — helped him earn first-team all-tournament honors.
