The Galesburg Boys basketball team finished off a 28 win regular season with an 85 – 58 win at Limestone the final score making it sound a lot easier than it really was. Late in the 3rd quarter the Silver Streaks led by only 9, they had taken a 23 point lead early in the 3rd quarter but a 12 nothing Limestone run got the Rockets back into the game and again trailed by just 9 late in the 3rd quarter.
Demarco Harden, our Dave’s Auto Body Crunch-Time Player of the Game, knocked down a 3-pointer at the buzzer to finish the 3rd quarter, which gave the Streaks a 12-point lead heading into the 4th quarter. That sparked a 24-0 run that by the time it was over, the Streaks, in a flash, had built the lead to 83-50 and a running clock quickly ended the game. It was the Streaks 28th win of the regular season.
Jaylin McCants finished with 24 points and 8 rebounds to lead the Streaks, Demarco Harden had a career high 18 points 5 out of 6 from 3 point range. Kyleb Meadows off the bench had 16 and Eric Price also finished in double figures with 10, he is now over 800 points scoring for his career.
