Southwood C Tops Rochester

The Knights C team picked up a very nice rematch victory on Monday night, defeating Rochester 42-36. Southwood had defeated this tough Rochester team by 23 points earlier in the season, but got the Zebras best shot tonight. The Knights half court defensive pressure and solid execution against the Zebra press led to a quick 17-5 lead after the opening six minutes. The Zebras hit two big threes in the 2nd quarter to go along with their strong inside presence to pull the lead to eight at the half. The host squad came out firing once again in the third quarter by limiting second chance opportunities and not allowing the Zebras to get easy post-up baskets. The visitors would not go quietly however, hitting three more triples in the fourth. The Knights guards worked the ball well in the final frame and hit three free throws down the stretch to secure the victory. This was arguably the Knights best won of the season. This Rochester team was physical, well-coached, and had defeated several quality opponents since their previous meeting in December. Following the victory, the Knights move to 11-5 and will close out their season on Wednesday as they host Maconoquah.
