“It was a combination of everything,” he said. It was just one of those nights. It’s hard to explain.

‘Our shooting percentage had to be under 20 for the night. We couldn’t throw in the ocean in the first half. It could have gotten ugly, but the defense kept us in it.

The Hoboes were unable to wrestle the lead from the Knight, but Laurel Hill was stayed within striking distance.

Rocky Bayou pushed the lead to nine points on several occasions, but was unable to get the lead to double digits.

The Knights’ lead was nine at 43-34 with 5:41 left in the game after free throw by Kyle Wilson.

A Hartzog free throw trimmed a point off the Rocky lead and triggered a 13-4 Hobo run.

Bryson Cooper scored on a layup on an assist from Hartzog after a steal and the Hoboes were off and running. Cooper, Hartzog, Strickland and Max Smith all scored during the run.
