Fans Experience Knight Madness (11/27/2017)
Sophomore Caleb Gribbins (35) gets plenty of attention from sophomore Isaac Lanham (22) and junior Neal Gordon (44) in Tuesday night's Knight Madness at the Roby Dome.
On Tuesday night the Marion County Knights' fans got a chance to see the 2014-2015 squad in action at Knight Madness, the team's annual pre-season exhibition. In addition to a Varsity scrimmage, a combined Junior Varsity/Freshmen scrimmage, a dunk contest, a three-point shooting contest, and various drills, those in attendance got to participate in contests and prize drawings. The crowd was also entertained by the Marion County Cheerleading Squad and the Marion County Pep Band.
Students showed up in body paint to show their enthusiasm for the Knights.
The Knights have one more JV/Varsity scrimmage scheduled for this Saturday at Male High School in Louisville where they will play Christian Academy-Louisville. The JV squads will start their match-up at 11:30 AM with the Varsity teams scheduled to tip off at 1:00 PM.

In their first scrimmage of the season, Marion County's JV and Varsity Knights both split their scrimmages with the Raiders of Iroquois High School. The Junior Varsity Knights won the first and fourth quarters of their contest while falling short in the second and third quarters. The Varsity squad went the opposite direction, winning the second and third quarters while finding themselves on the short end of the score in the first and fourth quarters.
Marion County JV coach Matthew Thomas described himself as pleasantly surprised with his squad's performance, but said the team needs to improve its outside shooting and cut down the number of turnovers. Junior center Neal Gordon led the scoring effort for Marion County with nine points on 4-9 shooting. Gordon and sophomore Caleb Gribbins both grabbed seven rebounds to lead the JV Knights efforts on the boards.
Marion Co. JV -- 14 6 7 10
Iroquois JV -- 9 9 17 2
In the varsity contest, senior Anton Cowherd led the way for Marion County with 19 points, including shooting 2-5 from behind the three-point line. Fellow senior Anthony Tonge added eight points while sophomore Isaac Lanham scored nine. The Knights' defense held Iroquois to 29.5% shooting from the floor, but missed their own opportunities at the free-throw line, converting only 12 of 24 attempts at the charity stripe.
Marion Co. -- 10 22 15 8
Iroquois -- 14 15 6 22
The Knights' next scrimmage takes place Saturday at Male High School where they will take on Christian Academy-Louisville. But this Tuesday the team will take the floor at the Roby Dome for Knights Madness -- an open exhibition for the public featuring intersquad scrimmages, drills, and likely some contests for the crowd. Doors open at 6:00 PM with activities starting at 6:30 PM.
