DANVILLE — Rivalry games often bring about high emotions, by fans, players and coaches alike. On Tuesday, a disputed no-call brought forth a technical foul on Danville coach Matt Moore, and East Knox took advantage with a huge run to pull away from the Blue Devils, 66-50.
The incident happened in the third quarter, when an East Knox layup was made after another Bulldog player grabbed the net. Moore argued that the play was goaltending, but the officials accepted the basket. After arguing, Moore was cited for a technical foul, and the Bulldogs made the point and received the ball. Cade Finnell hit a 3-pointer on the ensuing play, and the 6-0 run did much to give East Knox some distance on the Blue Devils.
