Knights slay Comets 83-60

The men’s Knights basketball team played their arch nemesis the Palomar Comets in Harry West Gym on Jan. 31.
The opening minute was a case of finding balance, thereafter it was a complete annihilation of the opposition.
After the first 15 minutes the Knights were up by 39 points, and would go into the half leading 50-14. Streaking past Palomar continuously, it looked as though an embarrassing thrashing was about to be handed out to the fizzled Comets.
The final score was 83-60 and City ended up eclipsing any hope of a Palomar victory.
At one stage it seemed as though the game should have had a PG rating, as the destruction rained down by the Knights on the Comets was almost too scary to watch, under the leadership of guard Marquintice Davis, whose calming presence and keen eye guided his team to a glorious victory.
The shining Malcolm Thomas headed up the score sheet with numbers of 35 and 13 rebounds.
Having the likes of Jamel McGuire with 16 points and 5 rebounds helping out did not hurt either.
The No. 1 ranked Knights play MiraCosta at home on Feb. 11 at 7 p.m.
