HOWARD — Sometimes, the ball just doesn’t go into the hoop, no matter what you do.

The East Knox Bulldogs (5-12, 4-3 MBC), who led visiting Mansfield Christian (11-4, 8-0 MBC) by one point at halftime, went ice cold in the second half and lost, 51-34, in Mid-Buckeye Conference basketball action on Friday.

The Bulldogs were looking to avenge a 69-57 loss to the Flames earlier this season. They came out strong, playing an up-tempo game. Taylor Moser (13 points) grabbed pair of steals, hit a 3-pointer and another bucket to help the Bulldogs to an early 7-2 lead.

“We did a good job of executing and being patient,” said East Knox coach Jeremy Hubbard. “Not everything was great, but I thought we did a good job of relying on one another. We controlled tempo. We had the pace where we wanted it.”
