ST. MARYS — The St. Marys boys basketball team showed again on Friday night it can win a low-scoring game. Meanwhile New Knoxville was left trying to figure out a way to put together a full game after an anemic second half allowed a lead to slip away for the second straight contest.
The Roughriders rallied from a six-point halftime deficit and held an opponent under 45 points for the second straight game in a 51-41 victory over the Rangers at Memorial High School.
