The Knights started out slow, but by halftime had the Buffaloes, well, “buffaloed.” Thanks to the hustle of Jordan Talbott, the Knights were able to shut down the Floyd game plan. Talbot scored 26 points. Andrew Tucker, Patrick Bennett, John Bennett, JT Sandidge and Ethan Humprhries each rallied behind him and picked up the score. Humphries was hurt during the second quarter with a eyebrow cut that left the fans worried about his return. Thanks to the Athletic Trainer, Kim Kirk, Humphries returned in the second half.
