BAINBRIDGE ISLAND — The Sequim boys basketball team (1-0) kicked off the season with a come-from-behind 64-59 nonleague win against Bainbridge (0-1) on Wednesday.

“I just told the team to be patient,” Sequim basketball coach Greg Glasser said.

“We made the extra pass in the second half and got more open looks.”

Bainbridge scored 30 points in the second quarter after scoring only two in the first but had a 32-23 lead at the half.

Glasser made a second-half switch by assigning Kenny Meier to the Spartans’ No. 1 scorer, Rico Failla, who had 17 points by halftime.

Meier shut Failla down for the rest of the night.

Nick Camporini led the Wolves with 17 points, scoring 11 in the third to help Sequim make a comeback.
