It was a slow start for the North Fayette Valley boys’ basketball team on Friday night, but the TigerHawks prevailed in the end.

“Kee is always a tough place to play and it proved to be again on this night,” said coach Matt Krambeer after the 42-34 win. “We got off to a slow start and missed a lot of easy shots in the first half.”

Kee jumped out to a 7-2 first quarter lead and then extended it to 19-12 at the half, but the feisty TigerHawks refused to go down that easy after putting up a season-low first-half total.
