Despite losing the lead and Saturday's game, Mike Filippini was pleased with his Red Devils. The Hall mens team lost to Kewanee in a Marseilles tourney semi-final 71-56. During the third quarter, the Boilermakers ground away at Hall's eleven point lead. Starting the fourth, Hall lead 50 – 48. Both teams picked off each other's passes, but aggressive high-pressure defense and Kewanee's inside-guy, Carson Sauers proved to be a problem for Hall. Back to Filippini, who after the game, said this:
With two more matchups, we asked the Coach what do you do with Kewanee's Sauers?
Tyvon Epps had 24 points and five boards. Trez Rybarczyk added 21 points and eight rebounds. Hall plays Earlville for third place at Marseilles Monday at 6:30.
