MORRISTOWN, NJ – Morris Knolls presented a different challenge to the Morristown High boys basketball team on Wednesday night.
 
The visitors from Denville played a 1-2-2 zone, and limited the Colonials’ ability to drive in the lane and pick up points from close range.
 
Morristown had no problem hitting the three-ball from the outside, as Bill Connolly’s squad hit eight times behind the arc, more than enough to propel Morristown to a 56-40 victor over Knolls. The NJAC crossover victory gave the Colonials their eighth win against three losses.
 
 
As usual, Kevin Hoehn led all scorers with 25 points, while fellow senior Luke Haralampoudis also hit double figures with 12 points.
 
“They started off in that zone, and I think a bunch of guys were able to make shots. We really shared the ball well in our offense, found guys, and got uncontested looks,” said Connolly.
 
Morristown began to create separation with a 10-5 second quarter. In that span, Hoehn and Ashton Pardie both hit threes to open the quarter, and a Hoehn floater with a minute remaining in the half gave Morristown a 26-18 at the midway point.
 
A nine-point third quarter from Hoehn—including two more long-range treys—allowed Morristown to push its lead to 40-27 with a quarter remaining. Colonials big man Jason Blanco also added a put back layup and a free throw in the period.

 
The Hoehn-Haralampoudis battery continued to wreak havoc on Knolls (7-5) in the fourth, and Connolly put in his reserves when Morristown built up a 52-36 lead with 1:44 remaining after a pair of Haralampoudis charity tosses.
 
Morristown’s Ryan Lattimore closed out the scoring for the game with a put back layup with 45 seconds remaining.
 
The Golden Eagles—who were led by nifty point guard Christian Bornemann with 12 points—took their only lead at 13-11 late in the first period, but that was quickly erased by a Tom Ferrara three and an acrobatic Haralampoudis layup in the lane. In an ominous sign as to what was coming, Hoehn hit his first three-ball less than a minute into the game.
 
“Morris Knolls is a tough, feisty team,” said Connolly, “this was a good win for us to go out and earn tonight.”
