Cold Shooting Knoxville Boys Fall To Chariton On Saturday


The Knoxville boys Basketball Squad was as frigid as the recent temperatures in Marion County as they fell to Chariton Saturday night 50-46. Neither team shot the ball well as the Chargers only held a 21-16 lead at the half. Free throw shooting kept the Panthers in the game as they went 20/28 from the line, but poor shooting down the stretch and too many turnovers kept Knoxville from victory. The Panthers had a chance to win in the late stages, however missed opportunities doomed them. Gerritt Davis led all scorers with 18 points as Knoxville falls to 1-13 on the season and will stay with South Central Conference opponents with a trip to Albia tomorrow night.
