It was a start to forget for the Burrell Bucs basketball team. Burrell began the season 0-4 but have rattles off two straight wins since then including their first Class AA Section 1 win of the season Dec. 20 against West Shamokin, 47-45.

The Bucs currently sit at 2-4 and are tied atop the conference with Summit Academy and Ford City with 1-0 records.

Brendan Lettri led for Bucs in double figures with 15 points in their win against West Shamokin.

The Bucs will compete in the Freeport tournament over the weekend where they will play Freeport and Knoch.

They will be back in section action on Jan. 3 when they travel to Apollo-Ridge.
