High school basketball: Bellarmine tops Mitty, extends WCAL streak


SAN JOSE — Bellarmine didn’t shoot particularly well Tuesday night. It also didn’t take great care of the basketball. But it was plenty good enough to keep its streak of consecutive West Catholic Athletic League wins intact.

The Bells extended the run to 19 games as Kendall Stubblefield scored 21 points — 13 after halftime — in a 60-49 victory at home over Archbishop Mitty.

Bellarmine led the entire way to improve its record to 11-2 overall and 3-0 in league.

Mitty, just one season removed from stunning Bellarmine to win the Central Coast Section’s Open Division championship, fell to 2-11 and 0-3.

“It’s really nice to be in a situation where there is clear room for improvement, but we won,” Bellarmine coach Patrick Schneider said. “It’s much better than the alternative of you have a lot to get better at but you didn’t get the win. Mitty is tenacious and physical. They did a great job disrupting us.”

Stubblefield was the clear star on this night as he made several agile moves near the basket to add to his point total.

The 6-foot-6, 225-pound senior had eight points at halftime to send the Bells into the locker room with a 21-17 lead and scored 10 points in the third quarter as Bellarmine padded its lead.
