Bloomington held an early lead with strong play from Southern Illinois recruit Chris Payton (2019) but Richwoods battled and continued to outplay the Raiders in an upset.

The Knights (12-4) were coming off a consolation championship at the Pekin Insurance Holiday Tournament and used that momentum for an 81-72 win over seventh-ranked (AP Class 4A) Bloomington (12-5).

This is the best game I’ve seen Richwoods play in three years against quality competition, and the Knights did it without senior forward Jaydion Davis, who is out indefinitely with an undisclosed foot injury.

Let’s take a look at the best things from Tuesday’s Big 12 meeting with the best lines from the game to close out.
