Bloom ran away with a 51-24 win over visiting Rich South on Friday. The Blazing Trojans picked up some style points in the process, throwing down dunks on three straight possessions.

Emphatic dunks and stifling defense prompted Bloom to Southland Conference retribution on Friday.

Bloom avenged its lone conference defeat with a smothering 51-24 victory over visiting Rich South.

“We play pretty good defense here when these kids start moving their feet,” Bloom coach Jasper Williams said. “I thought Zerrell Jackson had a great game tonight. He kept their point guards out of the lane.”

Jackson finished with just three points but dished out six assists. His third-quarter lob for a Johnny Griffin slam was one of three consecutive Bloom dunks that lit up the crowd.

Nhyree Mitchell got things started with a soaring breakaway jam off a steal, and Jataryan Dejareaux closed it out with a two-handed stuff coming on an unselfish pass from Jared Johnson.

Griffin added another terrific one-handed jam to open the fourth quarter and led Bloom (20-3, 8-1) with 13 points. Mitchell tossed in 11 and Johnson netted eight points and four assists.

Demitri Strickland led Rich South (9-13, 3-5) with seven points.
