The first time Kingsland and Lanesboro’s boys played this season, the Knights rode a big first half of three-point shooting (9 of 10) to a 66-57 victory. In the re-match, a late quick barrage propelled John Fenske’s guys to victory. Chris Hanson’s Burros used a deliberate attack to lead most of a fast first half of b-ball. Their biggest edge, the biggest edge of the game (until the final), was just five points (13-8). The half-time margin was 21-18. The second half featured 15 of the game’s 21 lead changes. In the final four minutes, Reid Kruegel and Lucas Howard each hit two threes. Lanesboro kept up (Andrew Luck five points), until Kruegel’s second triple, which broke a 47-47 tie (1:04). The Burros missed their last five FGs (all threes). Kruegel hit four (of four) free throws. The Knights swept the season series with a 54-47 win. Wyatt Pruter (21 pts, 7-8 FTs, 6 rebs, 5 asts), Kruegel (18 pts, 4-8 threes, 7 rebs), and Howard (10 pts, 4 asts, 4 stls) led the victors. Carson Schwichtenberg (18 pts, 4-8 threes, 5 asts) and Luck (17 pts) led the Burros. It is Schwichtenberg’s seventh straight game with at least four made threes (34 of 69). Kingsland went 8 of 14 from deep in the second half after a 1 of 14 first (9 of 28 total). Lanesboro was 8 of 22 for the game from deep. Kingsland also won at the free throw line (15 of 17 to 3 of 8) and the offensive glass (12 to 3). The Knights thus got up more field goals attempts (15 of 48 to 18 of 39).
