(Farmington) Friday is a MAAA Conference Matchup in Boy’s Basketball as the 7-4 Ste. Genevieve Dragons travel to Farmington to take on the 7-4 Knights on AM 800 KREI. The Knights took round one against the Dragons 70-55 in the Sullivan tournament earlier this season, but as we bring in the new year, Coach Rob Coleman of Ste. Gen wants to get some redemption against their conference opponent. He says his defense will need to be stout against the Knights backcourt.
The Knights guard play has been a highlight for them this season, as senior guards Bracey Blanton and JP Ruble combine for nearly 28 points per game. But for Coleman’s Dragons, the point guard spot has been the least consistent early this season.
Farmington also has a tough matchup Friday. The Ste. Genevieve frontcourt of Rudy Flieg and Aiden Boyer has started to find their stride on the low block. Both Flieg and Boyer average over 11 points and 8 rebounds for the Dragons. Knights Coach Garrett Callahan says his team will need to stay aggressive with the Ste. Gen size.
Callahan returns to the sideline for the Knights after missing the 65-56 win over Seckman on Wednesday. His absence was because there is a new member of the Callahan family.
Farmington takes on Ste. Genevieve Friday on AM 800 KREI. The Fliegs Equipment Pregame Show starts at 7:15 with tip-off scheduled for 7:30.
