“They aren’t a good team, so we took advantage of it,” the Cereal Killer’s Tyrhon Coward said. “First half we got off slow like we always do, which we have to change in the playoffs.”
The Cereal Killer’s played their usual fast paced game. In the second period they were turning the ball a lot, as well as rushing shots, and throwing the ball out of bounds. The Cereal Killers led 38-27 after the first half, but exploded in the second half. They pressed the ball more, making Stranger Danger rush their shots and turn the ball.
Stranger Danger seemed to be in the game in the first half, passing the ball well and hitting some of their shots, but things changed after halftime. As the game progressed and Stranger Danger started missing their shots, the Cereal Killers capitalized.
“We were playing their game,” Coward said. “We played down to the competition in the beginning. We turned over the ball six times straight, but we got it back. We fought through it.”
Justin Thompson led the Cereal Killers to victory with 21 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Michael Davis and Coward followed closely with 19 points each, and Davis also contributed six assists.
