Boy's basketball vs. Minneapolis Edison
February 27, 2012By Shanice Kong of Harding Sr High School
"It was a tale of the two halves" assistant coach Beck explains. Both head coach Keenan and coach Beck agree that the first half was not the best they've played. The Knights trailed the Tommies 12-26 at half time, but they came back to take the win. "In the second half, we turned it around and played well. "No turnovers, everyone did great." Coach Keenan described the second half. With 10 minutes left, down by 16, they cut the lead down to 5 points. About two minutes after, they tie it 39 all. Things started to pick up after Junior Kenny Reed gets a steal and goes for a dunk. The boys show no mercy and take the lead, stripping the ball back to back and finishing with a 13 point lead, final score 41-54.
"We need to continue to try and put together 36 mins of good basketball." - Coach Beck
