Game Two - Kruegers 79 West Panthers 61
Kruegers Donn Hill swarms West Panthers Stephen Milledge
In this highly entertaining second game, Kruegers depth proved to be the difference as they knocked off the West Panthers by a big margin. West Panthers kept it close at the end of the first, 18-15, thanks in large part to the shooting from point guard Stephen Milledge who scored nine of the West Panthers fifteen points. Kruegers guard Donn Hill responded in kind. Hill helped lead the Kruegers to a 24 point second quarter to take a 42-32 halftime lead. In one sequence, Hill assisted on a fast break lay-up, stole the inbound pass,scored, and then stole the inbound pass once again, was promptly fouled and he went on to convert both free throws. That took the air out of the West Panthers. Kruegers poured it on in the second half with a balanced attack outscoring WP 37 to 28 to close out the game. Hill did it all, posting 25 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assist and 3 steals to lead the Kruegers while Milledge scored a game high 30 points, 4 assist and 2 steals in a tough loss.
