 Panther JV Gets Big Win Over Greenfield, 39-35

February 14, 2007 - A pivotal 9-2 third quarter run propelled the Knightstown junior varsity basketball team to a 39-35 victory over Greenfield-Central last Thursday.

Knightstown and the Cougars pretty much traded baskets for most of the first half, with Greenfield taking an 11-10 lead after one quarter. A 12-9 second period run by the Panthers put them up 22-20. Travis Titus did most of the damage for the Panthers, scoring 10 of his team-high 13 points in the first half. A couple more buckets from Jordan Back enabled the Panthers to hold that two point advantage after the first 12 minutes.

After the Cougars hit a quick jumper to tie the game at 22, Knightstown then took control of the game. They played extremely tight defense, holding Greenfield scoreless for the last 5 ½ minutes of the third quarter. Three pointers from Jordan Hauk, Titus and Colton Kinnaman were the only shots the Panthers hit in the fourth quarter. But that barrage enabled the team to take a 31-22 lead into the final frame.

The Cougars finally ended their scoring drought with five minutes to play, pulling them to within 31-24. Knightstown responded by getting a 15-footer from Kinnaman and a free throw from Chris Mefford. Titus then hit Mefford with a great pass for two more, increasing the Panther lead to 36-26 with just 2:30 to play.

Greenfield put together a mini-run to cut the margin to 38-32 and had the ball back on offense, but they missed a trey that could have cut the margin to three. Back pulled down the rebound and hit a free throw to up the lead to seven points.

The Cougars got a meaningless three-pointer in the final seconds to cap the scoring.

Titus led the Panthers with 13 points. Back and Kinnaman scored seven apiece, while Hauk and Mefford added five each. Colby Lane hit a first quarter jumper for two points.
