ADA - Well-balanced Crestview fought off a game Ada squad to pull out an intense 70-62 Northwest Conference boys basketball road win Friday night.

Five Knights scored in double figures to total all of the Crestview points. Southpaw post Carson Kreischer led the victors with 18 points, while senior guard Kaden Short tallied 16. Ohio State-bound 6-8 recruit Kalen Etzler netted 15 points.

"I thought Kaden played probably his best game," said Crestview first-year head coach Doug Etzler. "Carson was very efficient inside, and Kalen did a good job passing."
