Eastern knocks out Madison-Grant



Madison-Grant shot just 36 percent from the field, including 2-of-16 from 3-point range and 13-of-18 from the charity stripe. Eastern finished at 51 percent shooting, including 6-of-14 from behind the arc and 14-of-19 from the charity stripe.

“We just couldn’t knock down a shot,” said Trout. “We could never close the gap and we couldn’t get a break. That’s just the bounce of the ball.”

Madison-Grant had a 32-30 advantage on the boards, including 15-7 on the offensive glass. The Argylls also had the edge in points in the paint (30-22) and turnovers (13-14) while the Comets had the lead in assists (17-8), points off turnovers (18-11) and second-chance points (13-9).

“We came into the year and had to replace 87 percent of our scoring and 80 percent of our rebounding,” said Trout of the season. “So to do what we did I am pleased with it. It’s never easy to lose that last game, especially for the seniors.”
