RedHawks fall at UMKC, 69-55

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WKRC) -- Despite a 10-0 start to open the game, the Miami University mens basketball team suffered a 69-55 loss at the University of Missouri Kansas City (3-7) on Wednesday night at Municipal Auditorium.

Sophomore guard Geovonie McKnight led the RedHawks with 11 points, while senior forward Will Felder tallied 10 rebounds.

The RedHawks (2-6) got off to an impressive start, opening the game on a 10-0 surge over the first 4:24 of the game. Freshman forward Joshua Oswald scored six of his eight first-half points during the opening flurry. Miami then went eight minutes without scoring a field goal, collecting three free throws during that stretch. 

After a 15-15 tie with 7:26 to go in the first stanza, UMKC closed out the half on a 15-6 run to carry a 30-21 lead into the intermission. Miamis last points of the half came with seven seconds left as McKnight sunk a long jumper to cut the Miami deficit to single digits.

McKnight continued scoring points for the RedHawks, collecting the Miamis first seven points of the second half. The Kangaroos, however, continued to extend their lead pushing it to a game-most 26 points with 5:35 to go, 64-38. Miami tried to stage late flurry, cutting the deficit to 12 off a sophomore forward Brian Oddo triple, but it was not enough.

Four Kangaroos scored in double figures, led by Nelson Kirkseys 13 points.

Miami concludes a two-game road trip when the RedHawks travel to Tennessee State for a game on Saturday, Dec. 21. The game time has been moved to 5 p.m. (ET).
