David’s three-pointer made it 37-32 after three quarters, and after Konecny pulled the Foxes to within 37-35 on another three, David came back the other way with one of his own.
The Foxes came back once again at 45-43 after two free throws from Mason Klaas, but again it was David to the rescue with a three-pointer with 2:05 left to make it 48-43.
“You’ve got to respond when the crowd is getting into it and bench is getting into it,” David said. “When we get good looks I feel like we’re a pretty good offense.”
David sealed the game with two free throws in the final seconds after the Knights forced a turnover with 5.5 seconds left, which came right after they had coughed up the ball on a five-second count.
“It was the first time this season where I felt like we weren’t going to be denied,” Zick said. “It felt like we were going to win no matter how they came at us. Brett made some big shots and I thought Chase [Carlson] had a nice game inside for us with some clutch rebounds and baskets.”
Will Cushman added 11 points and Bryce Ebert had eight points for Kaneland. The Knights also made 10 three-pointers.
Konecny led all scorers with 18 for the Foxes. Klaas added10 points and Cole Yearsley had nine.
