As the Westchester Knicks' inaugural season was coming down to the wire, they had their last March game of the season against the Grand Rapids Drive. Let's see how it played out: Westchester started off a bit shaky immediately going down 10-0 after just about 2 minutes of play. They then came storming back to give themselves the lead after being down 10 to make the score 13-10 with Westchester in front. They continued to trade baskets throughout the rest of the quarter but Westchester still had the upper hand with a lead of 31-27 to end the first. Halfway through the second, the Knicks led 48-41. However, the Drive came back to tie the game at 61 a piece to end the second quarter. With around 5 minutes left in the third, the Drive took the lead by 4 with a score of 75-71. At the end of the third, the Drive led 83-78. In the fourth, with around 8 minutes left, the Drive had a 96-86 lead. Westchester looked for a spark to get back into the game and they got it with around 4 minutes left, cutting the Drive's lead to 5 points. However, they could not finish the job and the Drive went on to win 111-103. We interviewed new head coach Craig Hodges after the game. This was his first game being the head coach of the Westchester Knicks and he was pretty pleased with the effort they put in. To see the full interview, watch the video below.
Westchester played their best on the court and they should be looking into next season with their heads held high. Let's go Westchester! Thanks for reading and please comment!
