  • Breds open season with narrow defeat at Simon Kenton

    Senior Cody Chambers couldn’t miss Tuesday night as his 23-point effort led the Simon Kenton Pioneers to a tight 63-61 win over the Harrison County Thorobreds in Independence.  
    Despite the fact that the Breds shifted the defense to Chambers’ side of the floor he still made contested shots that led to a 40-32 halftime advantage for the home team.
    The second half saw the Breds switch to a match up zone playing much tougher defense causing the Pioneers to become very deliberate taking only close-in shots.
