On Friday the 15th the Royals went to Broken Arrow, OK to play in an exhibition game against Rhema Bible Training College. It would be the Royals final tune up before their final game of the season coming up this Friday night.
The first half was a battle as Rhema shot well to keep it close. Ecclesia played their best offense in the transition game during the first 20 minutes. The Royals struggled shooting which allowed their opponents to hang around.
After halftime the defense improved for Ecclesia, and shots began to fall for them on the offensive end too. The game remained close until the final 2 minutes when Vince Toftness (Owenton, KY/Asbury University) knocked down three 3’s and a layup to go on an 11 point hot streak. Ecclesia got the win, and are looking to send the seniors out the right way on Friday.
Senior night will began with a pregame ceremony at 6:50 p.m. at The Jones Center. Tip off is then at 7p.m. against Champion Christian College. Go Royals!
