ARTHUR -- In the championship game of the Knights Holiday Classic, both teams struggled to find the basket early and often.

Tri-County led St. Teresa 9-4 after the opening quarter and went on to win the low-scoring game, 29-22, on Wednesday.

St. Teresa took their first lead of the game late in the second quarter only to give up a last second two-point basket to Tri-County junior Shayne Smith, who went on to win the tournament MVP.
