Galesburg Silver Streaks Boys Basketball vs. Moline Maroons


Here is a recap of the game from WGIL’s Brad Bennewitz:

“A back-and-forth battle reminiscent of the classic Western Big 6 conference games that you might think of throughout history led to a Silver Streaks victory in an upset win over Moline 55-54. The game came down to the very final play with the Silver Streaks missing four of their last free throws at the line which allowed Moline to get off a 3-pointer at the buzzer which would have won the game for the Maroons, but it went in and out and the celebration was on on the court as the Silver Streaks won their fourth consecutive conference game to get above the .500 mark at 5-4 in the Western Big 6. Moline ends the conference season with at least a share of the conference title as they go 8-2. Keith Cunngham led the way offensively for the Silver Streaks with 15 points and 11 rebounds but our Dave’s Autobody Crunch-Time Player of the Game was Nick Fields who finished with 8 points, had two huge steals late in the game, knocked down two big free throws, and had a run out that was all part of that offensive and defensive effort to help secure the Silver Streaks 16th victory of the season. Galesburg returns home Saturday night where they will take on Geneseo in an earlier start at 6pm for the tip-off.”
