HOWARD — East Knox was hoping to give seniors Chase Henthorn, Cody Green, David Judson and Dominic Susi a final, regular season home game to remember. It didn’t happen.
The turnover-riddled Bulldogs found that emotion was not enough as they lost to the visiting Mansfield Christian Flames, 52-40, in Tuesday’s boys interleague basketball action.
“We started our seniors,” said East Knox coach Jim Davis. ”Everyone was excited about playing one for them and winning one. Sometimes, you have to temper that emotion a little bit in order to play effective basketball. We didn’t play effectively in the first quarter, at all.”
The Flames (15-5) jumped out to an 11-3 lead, grabbing six first-quarter steals and a pair of buckets by Caleb Young (22 points) and Brandon Mount (nine points). The Bulldogs (6-15) turned the ball over 11 times in the first quarter, only getting field goals from Bobby Cornwell (six points) and Judson (14 points). East Knox had 25 total turnovers including 12 steals by the Flames for the game.
