    Kenwood Knights Basketball use speed, athleticism to overwhelm Community Vikings 70-37

     

    Kenwood High SchoolClarksville, TN – It was just too much speed and athleticism on the part of the Kenwood High School Knights basketball team, November 11th in their TSSAA Hall of Fame Game, as they dominated the Community High School Vikings in a 70-37 win to open the regular season.

    The Knights utilized their speed and athleticism on both ends of the court against the Vikings, as they harassed the Community ball handlers into turnovers, dominated the glass rebounding and beat their opponents up and down the floor all night long.

    It would take almost two minutes before either team would make a shot from the floor, with Community’s Tyler Broles knocking down a three-point field goal to get things going – and giving the Vikings their only lead of the night, 3-2.
