Knights rally vs. Mustangs
The pains associated with growth made themselves crystal clear to Chicago Christian last Tuesday.
Specifically, it was during the third quarter of the Knights’ clash with Evergreen Park in Palos Heights that Christian’s youth wasn’t served well. An unsightly 10 turnovers, several of which led to Mustangs baskets, hampered the Knights in that period and turned a once-comfortable double-digit lead into a slight deficit.
“We just took the proverbial shot to the gut,” Christian coach Kevin Pittman said. “Athlete-to-athlete, we don’t stack up to Evergreen, but a lot of the wounds we suffered were self-inflicted through [things like] poor decisions and poor closeouts. In our estimation, we were in control of the game before that.”
