On Dec. 10, the Martinez Jr. High Bullpups 8th grade girls basketball team finished off the Brentwood 2016 Invitational basketball tournament in a dramatic fashion.
The Bullpups took the championship in an overtime win by a score of 35-28 over Knightsen Middle School.
The girls went 3-0 in the tournament and used an effective full-court press to slow down their opponents. Despite holding a halftime lead and some key three-pointers by Knightsen, the Bullpups were able to hold on in overtime and take the trophy.
