It was a battle from beginning to end between these two undefeated teams tonight. The Eagles got off to a strong start in the 1st quarter but CC rallied to tie things up at 12-12 thanks to a couple of three pointers by Keaton Brooks. In the 2nd quarter, Faith used some strong inside play to gain it’s biggest margin at 25-19. In the 3rd, the Knights offense came alive (scoring 14) to help pull them within two by the end of the quarter at 35-33. Then in the 4th, CC tied the game on two different occasions – one with an Albert Schwartz basket – then another on a three point play by Alex Hardebeck. However, a missed defensive assignment on a Faith inbound play under the basket – and an errant pass with just seconds left proved costly – as CC falls for the first time this season 41-39. Despite the loss, Albert Schwartz had a strong game scoring 17 points to go along with 6 rebounds. He was followed by Keaton Brooks with 8 and both Nick Page & Alex Hardebeck added 7 points apiece. The CC A team is back at it again this Thursday night at home with a matchup against Tuttle (Crawfordsville) at 7pm.
