BOYS HOOPS: New Knoxville wins a wild one in double OT

December 10, 2012

NEW KNOXVILLE —   After a bizarre ending to regulation, the  New Knoxville Rangers basketball team defeated the Anna Rockets Saturday night 79-76 in double overtime in a non-league game held at New Knoxville, but the win was not without controversy.

An inadvertent point for the Rockets was put on the scoreboard late in regulation making the score look like a four point lead for the Rockets. Jake Allen hit a three at the buzzer making the apparent  score 62-61.

BOYS HOOPS: St. Henry sizzles inside 3-point arc in win over St. Marys

December 8, 2012

ST. HENRY — The ball barely touched the floor when St. Henry got its half-court offense clicking in the third quarter of its 71-48 win over St. Marys on Friday night.

The Redskins zipped the ball around and found a steady diet of point-blank baskets to feed a big third  quarter.

“St. Henry passes the ball very, very well,” St. Marys head coach Dan Hegemier said. “It allows their team to get nice, easy looks.”
