That Keiton Page -- he's not half bad
By Robert Przybylo
Well, it was just another ho hum night for Pawnee’s favorite son, Keiton Page. You know, the usual, 61 points, 11-16 from downtown, beating a sixth-ranked team by 31 points. It doesn’t get more pedestrian than that.
Even if sarcasm doesn’t connect with the written word, you get the point. Keiton was out of his mind Tuesday night in a 93-62 thumping of Class A No. 6 Frontier.
Talking with both Keiton and his father/coach, David, they said the key to the game was early. Pawnee raced off to a 24-4 start and never looked back. Using a press, the Black Bears were able to get a lot of turnovers and convert them into easy buckets.
And then the fun really started. Keiton made five consecutive 3-pointers at one point as Pawnee was in cruise control with a 50-27 lead at halftime.
I’m sure there were several reasons for the big night, but one of them is rather simple: Frontier decided to play Keiton and Pawnee man-to-man.
Say wha? Jenks is the only other team to use such a strategy and on that night, Page was “limited” to 40 points.
