Subiaco Academy entered the last week of season with aspirations of tying for a conference championship.
Tuesday, Feb. 13 was Senior Night as the Trojans hosted Booneville. Senior Nights do not always go as scripted with nerves and disruptions always an obstacle. The 2014 Senior Night, however, did go as planned, with Daniel Dunham, Chris Post, Chris Reed and David Johnson all finishing their career in Oskar Rust Gymnasium with a bang. Added to the excitement of the night was the announcement of Dunham’s appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy.
The seniors got the Trojans off to the early lead with Dunham throwing in five first period points. Many Trojans played, including Cash Krueger who scored 22 points while taking only seven shots from the field in 13 minutes as the Trojans cruised to a 57-27 win.
On Friday, Feb. 14 the Trojans traveled to Maumelle to take on the Hornets.
Subiaco fell behind early and trailed 18-9 at the end of the first period. Behind the offense of Chris Reed, the Trojans came roaring back and went into the half with a 31-30 lead. The second half saw the Trojans unravel against the Hornet pressure, both from players and stands as they fell to Maumelle and saw Maumelle walk away Conference Champs.
Subiaco will start tournament play in Pottsville on today (Wednesday) at 5:30 p.m. with an opponent yet to be determined. If the Trojans win on Wednesday, they will play Pottsville at 8:30 p.m. on Thursday.
