Northmor vs East Knox
KIMAC Boy's Basketball
Knights Slash East Knox 46-30
Northmor stymied East Knox on the road to secure second place in the KMAC, ending the Bulldogs 4-game winning streak with a 46-30 victory at the Dog Pound.
The Golden Knights (9-5) suffocated East Knox defensively for the first three quarters of play, holding the Bulldogs (8-5) to 16 points in 24 minutes of gameplay. Blake Miller set the tone at the offensive end for Northmor with seven points in the opening frame as the knights built a 10-4 cushion and extended their lead to 20-13 by the half.
Riding the hot hand of Max Lower, who dropped 10 of his dozen points in the third, Northmor was able to put some distance in between themselves and the Bulldogs entering the fourth, outscoring the home team 17-3 in the period to own a commanding 37-16 lead.
East Knox would show some pride by pouring in 14 points in the final frame with Carson Steinmetz accounting for six, but their slow start would cost them a double-digit loss on their home court.
Weston Melick paced the Bulldogs offensive attack with 11 while Steinmetz added nine and Peyton Lester
put up five. Miller led all scorers with 13 for Northmor who got 12 points from Lower, seven from Hunter Mariotti and five by Kooper Keen.
