|Piketon survives OT thriller against Adena
Redstreaks outscore Adena 20-6 in extra period
After 32 minutes of play, Piketon and Adena were tied at
62-62 and heading to overtime. A much smaller Adena team
was much improved on the boards compared to their
round-one loss to Piketon. A big key on the boards was the
ability to get Evan Legg in foul trouble. In the first meeting,
Legg was able to get to the paint and breakdown the Adena
defense making it impossible to deal with Piketon's size on
the glass. In Friday's thriller, Adena was able to contain
Piketon's fine guard play and that put them in a position to
steal one on the road; however, the extra period saw Buddy
Barnes foul out and Piketon take over. The Redstreaks
outscored Adena20-6 in the extra period to secure the win
and leave them two wins shy of an SVC title.
Jordan Brabson scored 18 of his team-high 23 points after
halftime and Keenan Brush added 22 points and 11
rebounds to lead Piketon. Cody Smith chipped in 14 points.
For Adena in the loss, Clay Roll scored a game-high 28
points. Zach Skaggs added 14 points while Barnes scored
11 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.
