With nearly half the season over, London is in a dogfight with Boston for the top spot in the National East division.  The two teams are tied for the division lead with both splitting the head-to-head matchup so far.  In a season where many viewed London as vulnerable, the Knights have held steady on the backs of their stalwarts, Val Crumley, Jean Larry and Jose Owens.  Crumley remains one of the best floor generals in the league despite being 32 years old.  Larry is still Larry, a premier defender, though his blocks are down at 5.4.  Though that’s likely due to the team having 3 other bigs rejecting 2+ shots per game.  Then there's Owens.  The big man started slow but has turned it on and currently leads the team in points per game at 21.8.


Outside of the big 3, the team have leaned heavily on Fredrick Gerard and Thomas Grundy, both veterans with the team for many seasons now.  Gerard once again is starting for the Knights at small forward while Grundy is playing out of position at shooting guard earlier on.  Power forward Forrest Valentine was signed off the street to provide additional scoring upfront and has delivered in spades.  He currently is 2nd on the team in scoring at 12.6 points while shooting 52%. 


The biggest challenge for the team was rebuilding the perimeter after the entire backcourt (minus Crumley) defected in Free Agency.  Gone were Alain Lagon, Truman Kaplan and Louie Benfield.  In their place are Ed Scott (6'1"), Eric Durham (6'2"), and Jeffrey Cluff (6'1").  After having one of the biggest backcourts in the league, the Knights are going small this season. 


Coach Bennett: "Someone once said its not the size of the dog but the fight in the dog.  Or something like that.  We have total confidence in Eddy, Eric and Jeff.  They're going to get the job done for us and we can be successful with them on the team."


As the coaching staff adjusted the game plan and lineup losses were expected.  Sitting with a record of 29-10, the team is thus far happy with the results and expect to be better heading into the second half of the season.  It will be a tough half as the schedule will be very road heavy.
