The No. 4 City boys basketball team struggled in the first quarter against host Ben Franklin at Masonville Cove. Coach Daryl Wade said poor shooting coupled with a "tough place to play" led to a 10-all tie after the first quarter.
But the Knights (6-0) turned up the defense with full-court pressure and got some much-needed turnovers to win, 64-50, over the host Bayhawks (5-1).
Kamau Stokes had a game-high 20 points and Omari George added 18 in a game in which City made no 3-pointers. The Knights went 24-for-35 from the free-throw line.
