The Tigers led just 30-29 at halftime, but pulled away with a 32-point outburst in the second half.

"We started out sluggish in the first half and seemed to turn the ball over too often," said coach Dale Henrich. "Our defense just wasn't itself, giving up 29 points, but showed up in the second half holding the Knights to 13.

"We got a couple quick baskets to start the second half and we ran out a little and then tightened up our press and half-court defense," explained Henrich.

Tracy Meichsner grabbed nine rebounds for the Tigers.

Holly VanKempen led the Knights with 14 points.
