The Moberly Lady Greyhounds beat Kennedy-King 92-17, and the men came from behind to beat Highland of Illinois 68-62 Friday on the first day of the Thanksgiving Classic. The Lady Hounds started the game on a 20-0 run and led 49-5 at halftime.

J.B. Connoley with the call on Information Radio KWIX and Shania Liburd finished with a game-high 16. Coach Hana Haden said they spent most of the night just trying to maintain focus.

The Lady Hounds are now 8-2 and play Lindenwood-Belleville Saturday at 5. Kennedy-King falls to 2-6.

The men trailed by as many as 11 in the first half, and by seven at halftime, but a 21-2 run early in the second put the Greyhounds up for good.
