After losing their season opener, the Knights were determined to improve their play on defense this week. The effort showed on Tuesday as they held KMS to only nine points in the first half.

“After a disappointing effort in Hillcrest last week, we’ve had a good week of practice where we focused on turning it up on defense,” head coach Kraig Hunter said. “Tonight we really set the tone from the start on the defensive end. We need to continue to be committed toward that in the future.”

Jay Zimmerman led the scoring for the Knights with 23 points. Three Knights scored double-digit points as Isaiah Westby scored 12 and Dakotah Kashmark finished with 10.

The Knights were dominant from the field, shooting 36-68 for 53 percent on field goals. KMS turned the ball over 32 times while the Knights committed only five.
