It was a sluggish start for the CC 8th Grade boys basketball team this morning against Covington. Turnovers and missed layups seemed to be the theme of the 1st half. However, with the score 21-17 (CC) to begin the the 3rd quarter the Knights woke up by turning their defense into offense. CC outscored the Trojans 11-2 in the 3rd quarter – and followed that up with a 22-6 / 4th quarter on their way to a 54-25 victory. Albert Schwartz topped all scorers with 12 points, followed by Alex Hardebeck who added 10 points to go along with 6 steals. CC also got contributions from Keaton Brooks with 9 points, Nick Page with 7 – and Jacob Buche chipped in with 5 points off the bench. The win put the Knights in the championship game against Seeger who defeated Faith Christian in their early game.
