The East Noble Knights Basketball team won a thriller in Overtime on Saturday, taking down the visiting Bishop Dwenger Saints 60-56.
East Noble was led by Hayden Jones who filled up the stat sheet with a triple-double – 22 points, 11 rebounds, & 10 Assists.
Sophomore Center, Chris Hood, tallied 18 points and 8 rebounds on the night.
Brooks Miller nailed a triple with 50 seconds remaining to give the Knights a 2-point lead before Dwenger tied it up with 2 free throws on the ensuing possession and East Noble missed a lay-up with 3 seconds remaining that could have won the game.
East Noble secured the tip in overtime and scored on its first possession and never relinquished the lead.
The Knights are back in action on Tuesday, February 18 as they travel to Bellmont to make-up a postponement from February 6. This will be the final NE8 contest of the season.
