Graham loses in OT

SPRINGFIELD – Graham battled Kenton Ridge on Tuesday, with the Falcons falling, 74-73, in double overtime in CBC boys basketball.

Graham took a 16-15 lead after the first quarter, with GHS’s Brady King and KR’s Tyler Eberhart each pouring in 12 points.

Kenton Ridge led at halftime, 29-24, and the score was tied, 57-57, at the end of regulation.

King had 29 points for the game with 8 rebounds and Brevan King scored 21 points with 8 rebounds. Chase Adams added 13 points.

The Falcons simply weren’t solid enough on the defensive end against Eberhart.

”We’ve got to be able to consistently get stops. KR and Eberhart came out strong and we made an adjustment. The kid can play, though,” Graham Coach Grant Hall said. “We stepped up our defensive effort in crunch time, but it’s got to be a full game. Brady did a nice job getting to the rim, but everyone needs to be more active.”

Graham hosts North Union on Friday.
