  15. NickStevensHSOT: And that's what it comes down to. If Millbrook can run & create TOs, they win. If Knightdale controls it & takes care of ball, they win.
      — Tuesday, March 3, 2015 12:55 PM
  16. NickStevensHSOT: Last night KNI had a possession where it ran more than a minute off the clock. If they can control the pace, not turn it over, it's an edge.
      — Tuesday, March 3, 2015 12:54 PM
  17. NickStevensHSOT: 3-point shooting is something else to watch between MBK & KNI - both can shoot exceptionally well.
      — Tuesday, March 3, 2015 12:53 PM
  18. NickStevensHSOT: Something to watch tonight between Millbrook & Knightdale is number of possessions. More possessions favors Millbrook, means more TOs IMO.
