MUNDAY—The Mun- day Moguls got off to a torrid start and avenged an earlier setback to the Knox City Greyhounds with a convincing 68-40 win on their home court Tuesday night to claim the District 16-1A title, finishing with a 9-1 record and a bye in the opening round of the playoffs.
Meanwhile, the Hounds had to settle for the No. 2 seed with a 7-3 district re- cord and a bi-district game against Spur next Tuesday.
“We got off to a really good start with 25 points in the first quarter,” ex- plained Coach Adrian Daniel, “and we limited them to only eight.”
The difference between this game and the earlier game in Knox City?
“We took care of the ball this time,” Daniel added. “We handled their press effectively and made big shots from inside.”
“We came out flat and they came out hot,” said KC Coach Jordan Carter. “They shot the ball well and we didn’t. I’m proud of the kids for fighting to the end. They showed a lot of heart. Munday was the better team tonight and now we have to get ready for the playoffs.”
Daniel felt Jaxon Bow- man played well and he ended up as the leading Munday scorer with 13 points. Bryson Wilson and Kameron Redder each added 10.
More importantly, the Munday bench got some valuable playing time as the Moguls maintained double digit advantages of 40-22 at halftime and 51- 33 after three quarters.
Gilbert Trevino led the Hounds with 13 points.
Munday connected on 28 of 56, including 7 of 13 from long range, and made 7 of 13 free throw while Knox City hit 11 of 40, including 5 of 17 3-point
