The Bishop Brady boys’ basketball team mounted a furious rally in its season opener yesterday against Conant, but ultimately fell short, losing 71-63.

Conant, the defending Division III champion that’s coached by Brady graduate Eric Saucier, doubled up the Giants early on, leading 34-17 at one point, but Brady scrapped back in the second half, pulling as close as two points before the Orioles pulled away.
