Miller Leads Sting Past Knights

The Seneca Sting responded to their first loss of the season by defeating the Fleming Knights 110-58 to improve to 2-1 on the season.

Dimitri Lim was a focal point for the Sting on offense with starters Jordan Anderson, Isaiah Ankra and Daniel Wright in sweats for the game. Lim scored the game's first basket on a lay up, finding a crease in the Knights' defense before cutting to the basket. The Sting dominated the first half, outscoring the Knights 26-9.

The second quarter was similar to the first as the Sting used great ball movement and consistent shooting to increase their lead to 51-18 at halftime. Lim once again brought the fans out of their seats by hitting a three pointer at the buzzer from eight feet beyond the line. The shot was punctuated by a foul which Lim converted for the four-point play.

With the game already decided, the Sting regularly made substitutions to get everyone more playing time. Jeremiah Brown took advantage of the additional playing time, scoring a season-high 19 points.

Isse Ibrahim brought the crowd to its feet one more time with just over two and half minutes to play. Sitting a point shy of the century mark, Ibrahim dribbled tight to the basket, saw his first shot miss and then grabbed the rebound with a left-handed put back. It was the second home game in as many attempts that the Sting hit the century mark.

Khalil Miller punctuated the final two and a half minutes with a pair of three pointers and a forceful block, kickstarting his campaign for a third straight OCAA East Defensive Player of the Year.
