The Westchester Knicks received an early Christmas gift by getting a solid win against the Erie Bayhawks with a finals score of 108-102. Westchester took control early, taking the lead by nearly 14 points, but Erie continued to fight. At the end of the third, the Bayhawks led 78-75. However, the Knicks were not done there as they proceeded to put Markeith Cummings into the game. He made a huge impact scoring 15 points in the fourth quarter alone to add to his 19. After the game, we had a couple of questions for coach Whitted after the game and what a huge impact Markeith had on the game.

Also, we were involved in a halftime trivia game where we would ask two lucky fans questions about the Westchester Knicks to see how well they “Know Their Knicks”. It was a blast and the crowd was all for it as they shouted answers to try and help the contestants. Anyway, here is the full half-time trivia segment of “Know Your Knicks”.
Lastly, after the game, we interviewed Westchester’s Darnell Jackson to see what he thought they did against a tough opponent. He was a really cool guy to talk to and I am looking forward to seeing him at many more Westchester Knicks games. Without further ado, here is my interview with Darnell Jackson.
Also, we met with the Westchester Knicks cheerleaders which was, of course, awesome, and we also met with a really awesome girl who works with the Westchester Knicks and the NBA, Marianne. Marianne was really nice and she even got us Christmas presents! She was really nice and I have a lot of people that I want to talk with again next game. Anyway, great game Westchester, thanks for reading and please comment!
Last night, the Westchester Knicks played the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in an extremely intense game. Rio Grande led for most of the game, but the Westchester Knicks rallied back to win 99-98 with a Darnell Jackson floater for the win. The Knicks played well throughout the whole game but they ended the best. Here is the video of Darnell Jackson’s game winner.
Everyone on the Westchester Knicks played great but here are some specific stats. Andre Barrett had 21 points shooting 50% from the field, and had 5 assists. Thanasis Antetokounmpo had 16 points shooting 75%, and also had 8 boards. Darnell Jackson had 17 points shooting 58% from the field, 12 rebounds, and the game winner. Anyway, after the game, I got to ask Coach Kevin Whitted a couple of questions and I got to interview Thanasis Antetokounmpo after the game. So, without further ado, here is my interview with Thanasis Antetokounmpo. To see the coach interview please visit Christian's Corner.
This is the first blog of many to come featuring the Westchester Knicks. They played very well and I cannot wait to see them again. Anyway, thanks for reading and please comment!
