8 Jan. 26, 2011 Your Hometown Newspaper S P--ORTS Bath County News-Outlook Owingsville native Clemons leads KCU past Ohio Christian GRAYSON - "It was break as the Trailblazers ugly, but it 'sure turned out pretty." These words from KCU assistant coach Grady Lowe may very well be the best way to describe Kentucky Christian's game against archrival Ohio Christian on Tuesday night (Jan. 18). The Knights struggled mightily in the first half, shooting a woeful six-for- 30 (20-percent) from the field, including one-of-10 from three-point, on their way to a paltry 15 points. However, KCU was down just 11 heading into the could only muster 26 points themselves. OCU's inability to capitalize on Kentucky Christian's poor play would prove costly. KCU pulled out the victory, winning 61- 59. While the first half was about as "ugly" as could be, the second half "sure turned out pretty." The Knights spent the first 17 minutes of the half chipping away at Ohio Christian's lead before a Taylor Webb three- pointer from the left' wing with three minutes left put KCU ahead for the first time. That was just the beginning of what would turn out to be an incredible finish. With the game knotted at 59 apiece, Kentucky Christian head coach Ron Reed elected to hold the ball for the final shot. That move would prove to be a wise one as Blandon "Juice" Clemons buried a jumper from straight on as time expired to give the Knights the victory. Clemons would be the only KCU player to reach double figures as he led the way with 11 points. Senior Katlin Haney came up with some big buckets in the second half on his way to a nine-point, seven- rebound performance. Kentucky Christian's dominance in two key areas, turnovers and bench points, is what allowed them to hang around and ultimately pull out the win. Zach Onusic and Eric McKee provided the biggest spark off the bench, scoring 16 (eight apiece) of the Knights' 20 bench points.
