On Monday, February 19, the ECOB Knights hosted the Miami Valley Saints.  In game one, the Saints JV jumped out to a 16-4 lead in the first quarter and to a 42-9 halftime lead.  The third quarter was all Saints as they led 58-14 at the end of three quarters.  The Knights played a better fourth quarter before falling to the Saints by a final score of 78-26.

The JV Saints were led in scoring by Tyler Stemen with 20 points, Myles with 15 points, and Nate Whitman and Cameran Daniel with 10 points each.  The JV Knights were led in scoring by Josh Martin with 12 points.  Mason Filbrun and Jake George led the Knights with 5 rebounds apiece while David Cox gathered 4 rebounds. 

It was Senior Night for the Knights Varsity.  They honored seniors Jacob Denlinger, Brandon Hunt, and Michael Watkins between the two games.  In the varsity game, the Knights started quickly and held an 18-10 first quarter lead.  The Knights defense was once again stellar in the second quarter and they took a 31-17 lead to the locker room at the half.  The Knights added to their lead in the third quarter and entered the fourth quarter with a 44-26 advantage.  The Knights then held on to avenge an earlier 13-point loss to the Saint by a final score of 51-36.

The Saints were led in scoring by Wes McFadden with 11 points.  The Knights were led by Brandon Hunt with 21 points and 5 rebounds and Michael Watkins with 14 points and 6 rebounds.  Nick Smith led the Knights on the boards with 8 rebounds and Aaron Clark led the Knights with 6 assists.

The Knights final game will be at home on February 26 against the Tri-County Thunder.
