Then, Westchester decided to take control with a 7-0 run to make it 13-6. Iowa pushed back, however, to make it 15-13 halfway through the first.

The Knicks then pulled away with a 101-96 lead with 49.9 seconds left in the fourth. Westchester won the game by a good 4 points with a final score of 108-104.

The Rocktown Monarchs also showed that they belong in the AAU leagues and tournaments because at halftime they played a game and really showed how they can ball out. They are coached by JR Inman and my brother and I are a part of the team as well. Anyway, to close, my brother and I were shown on the screens of the Westchester Community Center interviewing fans. Anyway, thanks for watching and please comment!
