Calhoun holds off Kennedy
(Page 2 of 2)

Kennedy's Tyler Merron, center, was doubled by Calhoun's Thomas Joannou, right, and Brian Downey during last Friday's showdown.

Indeed, it was McGinley, who posted a game-high 23 points and Murphy adding 19 of his own to lead an offense that canned seven three-pointers and 16 free throws. “When you get to the line you build confidence,” Kreutzberger said. “And right after McGinley hit two technical free throws, he hit a three-pointer.”

Defensively, Calhoun turned up the heat, cracking down on the interior, while also badgering Cougars shooters on the perimeter. Kennedy managed just eight third-quarter points and was held without a bucket for the first 4:10 of the frame. “We fixed a hole in our pressure,” Kreutzberger said. “We had some confusion and fixed our rotation. It gave us better ball pressure and we got some steals off of it.”

Before the Colts pulled away down the stretch, the Cougars cut the deficit from 12 to seven on the strength of a 7-2 run powered by Faiella  and senior Ethan Jones who accounted for all of the points, with the run ending when Faiella just beat the shot clock with a jumper
