Morris extends Kaneland's losing streak to five
The Morris Redskins got their 15th win of the season in style on Senior Night against the Northern Illinois Big 12 East leading Kaneland Knights with a 50-46 victory on Friday in front of a capacity crowd in Morris.
It was the final home game of the year for Morris’ three seniors: Ben Ortiz, Jason Matteson and Jake Hogan. And with Ortiz, Morris leading scorer, still sidelined with mononucleosis, the Redskins were able to pull out the dramatic win.
Kaneland got off to a blazing start on the road and deflated an energized Morris student section by jumping out to a 12-3 lead. The Knights hit five of their first six shots from the floor, including a pair from junior point guard Drew David, the second of which forced a Morris timeout with 2:14 to play in the first quarter.
