Click the Link Above! Story ran on February 26, 1994 Springfield Glendale's zone defense gave Hickman fits from the beginning last night. The Kewpies were never able to recover. The Falcons, the No. 2 ranked team in the state came out in a match-up zone that threw Hickman's offense out of synch and led Glendale to an easy 81-58 win. Glendale pulled to an 11-6 first quarter lead and extended its advantage to 11 points by halftime. Hickman (16-8) missed easy shots to open the third quarter while the Falcons drilled three-pointers to put the game away. "They just shot extremely well," Hickman coach David Johnson said. "They are one of the best teams we have played this year. Their zone defense took us out of our offense." Hickman starts district play Tuesday night at 6 p.m. in Jefferson City against Sedalia Smith-Cotton. The Kewpies fell to the Tigers 70-61 earlier this season. Hickman was led by Jamie Breshears 16 points and Paul Taylor's 11. Brad Fennerbacher led Glendale with 29 points.
