Boys Varsity Basketball · Roos Finish 2nd at B.B. Classic

by Felisa Cardenas/KDH News

Killeen took on Bryan Rudder in the Bo Burgess Classic Thursday morning, inching past the Rangers behind 24 points from senior Montego Muckelvaney and junior Cortez Ivie to win 68-66.

The win propelled the Kangaroos to a second-place showing in the annual tournament.

If the first four minutes of play against the Rangers were any indicator, the game was going to be a close battle as they held each other to only two points each.

Ivie found Muckelvaney waiting under the rim, fighting through three defenders to put the ball up and Killeen ahead, and if that wasn’t enough Muckelvaney stole the ball and drove down the right lane for a dunk.

Rudder tried responding with a three-point play to get back within a point of the Roos, but senior guard Michael House found Ivie waiting on the outside.
