Hot shooting sparks Knights' rout of Falcon boys basketball

LANGLEY – Live by the three, die by the three.

On Monday night, the Knights lived on hot three-point shooting; the Falcons’ upset aspirations died by it.

South Whidbey trailed 34-27 at halftime to the Cascade Conference’s top team. Then King’s senior James McCutchen connected on six three-pointers in the second half to lead the Knights to their sixth Cascade Conference win, 74-50.

The game began favorably for the Falcons on their home court at Erickson Gym. South Whidbey surged to a 7-0 lead within the first couple of minutes. King’s answered with an 11-point run to take the lead that it maintained and extended the rest of the game.
