HOWARD — Patience is a virtue. It can also decide who wins and loses basketball games.
The Fredericktown Freddies took their time with nearly every possession in Wednesday’s nonconference boys basketball game at East Knox. As a result, they hit more than half of their shots and ate up nearly three-fourths of the clock in the process.
The final tally of 49-33 does not reflect the kind of success the Freddies had offensively against the Bulldogs.
“We were quick to rush offensively,” said East Knox head coach Jeremy Hubbard. “We were shooting quick, then we spent a lot of energy defensively. I felt we played the entire night on defense because we couldn’t execute offensively. It wore on us as the game went on.”
Fredericktown hit 21 out of 41 attempts (51.2 percent) overall. The Freddies were patient as they looked for openings inside, where they exploited the Bulldogs for 18 of 28 (64.3 percent) from inside the arc.
