Shorthanded Knoxville Boys Hang Tough Against Oskaloosa

Posted: Saturday, January 30th, 2010 at 6:34 am


Having one of your top players out is bad enough, but the Knoxville boys also had the deal with the fact that not only was Luke Moore on the shelf with his ankle injury, but Mike Jacks was not available last night due to illness. However the Panthers played Oskaloosa tough but in the end the Indians prevailed 64-48. Coach Brad McWilliams said it was a good effort…but rebounding and the physical play of Oskaloosa won out. With both Moore and Jacks out the scoring slack was taken up by Jamie VanderVeer’s 11 points…Kaleb Robuck had nine and C-J Wright came off the bench to score seven. Knoxville is now four-and-11 on the season and will host Albia tonight as part of a varsity double header at seven-30.
