It can honestly be said that everyone got their money’s worth on last Saturday’s game. It took a double overtime to decide the outcome of this conference game.
The Greyhounds were scheduled to take on the #5 Johnson County Cavaliers in Overland Park, Kansas. Greyhound, Kevin Shead, made the first basket of the game and the Hounds never looked back. The teams were both evenly matched the entire game. The end of regulation posted a score of 70-70. In the first overtime, the scoring was very back and forth and it ended with a score of 79-79. In the second overtime, the Greyhounds took off and scored 14 points resulting in a win over the Cavaliers 93-88.
Key Players: Kannon Jones – 26 points, 6 rebounds, 4 steals, 3 assist
Nick Lawrence – 14 points, 3rebounds
Peter Simon – 16 points, 4 rebounds
Craig Jordan – 18 points, 7 rebounds
Coach Cook Thoughts:
“I thought our effort and execution was the best that it has ever been tonight. Our focus on the game plan and defense was good and of course as a coach I will always want those two things better each night but tonight it help us pull out the victory. Of course it is always nice to win on the road but winning against a top five team in the nation and one of the most respected program in the nation is even sweeter. This win helps in conference standings since we lost the game at home earlier this week, we cannot get complacent and have to want to get better daily and grow from this. It would not have been possible to get the win without the focus and team effort from our guys and the coaching staff.”
