The Knights controlled the game through all four quarters, consistently finding answers to the Cougar's attack.
The Knights were paced offensively by their 1st year guard Johnnie Richardson. The product of Niagara Falls, Ontario led the Knights in both points (21) and assists (7). Other strong performances came from forwards Jordan McDonald (Mississauga, Ont.) and Kevin Cooper (Nassau, Bahamas) who contributed 16 and 11 points to the winning cause.
