MOUNT VERNON — Whenever Mount Vernon and Big Walnut gets together on the basketball court, it can get scrappy.

The first period of Friday’s Ohio Capital Conference game featured seven turnovers, an intentional foul and a technical foul. It also saw the host Yellow Jackets trailing by six and playing without structure.

But the team rallied, as it has done all season, and came away with a 60-49 victory.

“I don’t think anything was said (after the first quarter),” said Mount Vernon head coach Kurt Kaufman. “I think it was just a matter of, enough is enough. Let’s just go out and play.”

The Jackets (4-3, 1-2 OCC) shook off an 11-1 run by the Eagles with a 17-7 performance of their own. They took the lead two buckets by Alex Arck and a pair of 3-pointers by Alex Glibert.

Although that lead didn’t expand to more than four until late in the third, they never fell behind to Big Walnut.
